The Blue Gala

After another sold out performance last year, the H/W School of Ballet and its principals, Yukichi Hattori, Tara Williamson and Galien Johnston-Hattori are back to host the much-anticipated third annual BLUE GALA! A performance not like any other, the BLUE GALA is guaranteed to lift your spirits with the beauty of dance following the melancholy brought on by Blue Monday. The performance features a variety of solos and collaborations by special guest and acclaimed ballet, contemporary, hip hop, ballroom and tap artists from across the globe, including:

- Myriam Simon & Alessio Scognamiglio (principal/soloist dancers, Les Grands Ballet Canadiens)
- Harold Rancano and Regan Hirose from Winnipeg (Latin Ballroom Champions)
- Kelley McKinlay (principal dancer, Alberta Ballet)
- Yukichi Hattori, Galien Johnston-Hattori & Tara Williamson Campbell (principals, Directors of H/W School of Ballet)
- Caroline “Lady C” Fraser from Montreal (Hip Hop artist)
- Brock Jellison (tap artist, Opening Ceremonies of 2010 Winter Olympics / 2014 Calgary Stampede Grandstand Show)

Following the performance, there will be a gala reception where guests will have the opportunity to meet the performers, relax with a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres and peruse the silent auction, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter. Guests are encouraged to wear their best blue outfit.

This is one of the best performances of the year and is not to be missed. Tickets will go quickly so get yours today!
