South Saskatchewan Youth Orchestra

The South Saskatchewan Youth Orchestra (SSYO) began in 1976 as a group of forty young musicians under the sponsorship of the Regina Symphony Orchestra.  It is lead by Musical Director Alan Denike and Assistant Director/Librarian Rudolf Sternadel.  The SSYO is in its 44th season. The award-winning orchestra has fifty members, but its purpose remains the same. With a commitment to excellence, the SSYO offers talented students from all over Southern Saskatchewan an orchestral experience - the opportunity to rehearse, perform, travel, and make lasting friendships with other young people who love music.

FadaDance Troupe

FadaDance Troupe formed in 2004 and incorporated as a non-profit contemporary dance company in 2009. Principal dancers Heather Cameron, Fran Gilboy, and Misty Wensel drive the artistic mandate of the company: to challenge the boundaries of contemporary dance on the prairies. This mandate is guided by an exploration of the unexpected and a commitment to collaboration within and outside of the organization. By presenting contemporary dance in alternative spaces and unconventional work in traditional performance venues, FadaDance Troupe is making dance accessible to a broad audience. This relationship to the audience exists in work that both invites and involves the viewer, breaking down barriers and conjuring excitement about the discipline. In this way, FadaDance Troupe not only cultivates an appreciation of the art form, they also build an enthusiastic and engaged community.

FadaDance Youth Company

 In addition to operating as a professional dance company, FadaDance Troupe is dedicated to training the next generation of contemporary dancers through their work with the FadaDance Youth Company. FadaDance has created an environment where the differences and diversity of each dancer is valued and appreciated. By continuing to construct programming that successfully includes a balance of improvisation, inquiry and dance technique, a stable and nurturing experience is created for the young dancer.

The FadaDance Youth Company consists of 15 young people ranging in age from 13 to 18.  Students fully participate in all aspects of dance including creating their own choreographies.  FadaDance Youth Company is a registered non-profit corporation.
