IGNITE BRINGS FIRE TO THE STAGE
ACS Member Profile

Ignite Dance Center (IDC) was founded in 2019 by Leslie Kuny & Rosie Punzo. Former co-workers, Leslie and Rosie admitted they desired to build their own studio, but knew they couldn’t do it on their own.

Both women share foundational values and have a passion to create a studio experience similar to the ones they grew up in – a studio where dancers are challenged in a safe, encouraging environment, where every student is valued, and every dancer is supported to discover their full potential.

IDC offers classes for all ages, from 2yrs to adults in a variety of genres in recreational and competitive classes. Ignite prides itself on being an inclusive dance space where our faculty is equally invested in who the person in class is, not just as a dancer.

If you’re looking for a new dance home, or have felt intimidated by other spaces, we’d love to welcome you at Ignite! Check out our website for more information about who we are and what we offer www.ignitedancecenter.ca

You can call us at 604-385-9915 or drop by our studio to meet our Directors, tour our facility, and get a feel for the Ignite vibe.

Surrey Festival of Dance Drawns to an End!
ACS Member Profile

The 55th annual Surrey Festival of Dance is drawing to a close. Beginning March 29 and finishing April 30 – this month long [and one of North America’s largest dance competitions even when produced ‘virtually’] dance fest attracts thousands of dancers, and studios of course, over the course of the event – to compete in a friendly atmosphere with their fellow peers.

While the main ‘competitive’ section of the festival is finished – there is the all important HONOUR AWARD presentations scheduled to take place Friday, May 13th at 7pm in the Newton Cultural Centre. While this event is LIVE once again, audience is restricted so is only open to the SFD staff, dancers, studios and family. Unfortunately the public is unable to attend due to space restrictions and COVID protocols. However, we hope that both the Honour Award presentations and the popular NO BORDERS DANCE COMPETITION will take place – on stage – LIVE in front of a public audience in 2023!

Meanwhile, the ACS would like to congratulate all the volunteers in the Surrey Festival of Dance Society for once again mounting a remarkable success in the dance community. We are proud that the SFD is a Member Group of the ACS.
