Discover Flamenco!

Flamenco is a unique and simply divine dance form that totally immerses you in a different world. So set the style and express yourself! Flamenco is cool, fun and creative: stamp your feet on the ground to match the fascinating rhythms of gypsy Flamenco music while moving arms and torso.

Immerse yourself in a fascinating culture that showcases one of the richest music styles in the world. Flamenco helps develop a fine sense of musicality, coordination and self-expression. No pre-training in dance is required and is suitable for all ages. Ole!

An opportunity for parents to introduce your child to the beauty and artistry of Flamenco in Fall 2006! Enrich your child's unique creative and cultural experiences while helping them to develop coordination, timing and confidence. Flamenco combines grace and strength with complex footwork. Basic steps can be learned fairly easily and is suitable for all levels of fitness.

In Spring 2007, Flamenco dance workshops for young people ages six to eight, nine to eleven, and twelve to sixteen taught by Maria Osende, will be offered by the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene and Halifax Wedding Chapel.

Sponsors: Flamenco for Young People [Ole! In Motion] is an initiative of the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene and Halifax Wedding Chapel, made possible thanks to a grant from Chebucto West Community Health Board and Active Halifax Communities.

Special Thanks: Robert Rockwell, owner/publisher of Parent-Child Guide Newspaper for printing our Spring 2006 ad larger and in colour.

About the Chebucto West Community Health Board

Chebucto West is one of seven Community Health Boards [CHB] in the Capital Health district. The Chebucto West Community Health Board is made up of fifteen volunteer community members who reflect the diversity of the community we represent. Their role is to be the "eyes, ears and voice" of the community's health. The main task of the Board is to consult with local residents and organizations about factors that affect their health.

Chebucto West is a unique mix of urban and rural communities. It includes people living in Fairview, Clayton Park West, Rockingham-Wentworth, Purcell's Cove, Armdale, Spryfield, Herring Cove, St. Margaret's Bay, Hubbards and Prospect. With a population of over 82,000, our diverse neighbourhoods embrace people from all walks of life. Several of our schools have student bodies representing over 30 different cultures. Chebucto West has very active citizens living in its coastal villages, fast-growing subdvisions, and urban streets. They are working to make their community a better place to live.

About the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene...

Saint Mary Magdalene is dedicated to making spiritual, educational, cultural, physical and recreational, musical and artistic avenues accessible to children, young people, and their families. In turn, we encourage young people to care, share their time and talents with others [particularly disadvantaged and excluded groups], and embrace social issues. We are committed to helping people, young and old, realize that they can make a difference in people's lives and discover ways they can contribute to their community locally and globally. We hope to achieve this by providing low-cost or free non-sectarian community programs .

Saint Mary Magdalene is an inclusive, non-judgmental Christian church whose mission is to serve all people, regardless of religion, denomination, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, sex, age, or mental or physical disability. We are a non-profit organization, all receipts go to non-sectarian programs that serve the community at large. Please learn more about our programs and feel free to consider us your Spiritual Resource for Life. We are here for you, so let us know how we can be of service...

The Halifax Wedding Chapel is the initiative of the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene, Halifax. We provide marriage ministry to all who seek a spiritually fulfilling alternative to civil marriage as well as non-denominational baptism.
