I started writing this in Ottawa, where I attended Hugo & Stacy’s fabulous “LevelUP” Intensive weekend hosted by Ken Lemoire with assistance from his wife Kate, his ‘dance wife’ Lana, and the inimitable Maria Ford. I remember Ottawa winters of my youth being far more cold and snowy than the practically bootless winters of downtown Toronto. But no matter where you are – I find that dance studios are always warm places, in more ways than one. 🙂
