Some of my friends say that sometimes I have weird dreams. Roller dance with wheelchair community was one of my latest dreams. Can you imagine how exciting it was when one day the organizers of Miss Wheelchair Canada 2018 contacted me and asked me to help with dance workshops and performance at the Gala show for the event. It was a blessing. It was an amazing experience. Everyone in our wheelchair-roller dance group had different physical abilities though we had the same passion for Life and Dance, everyone – on his own wheels! That’s why we had only 2 evenings for practices but we did our best and had great time together during our workshops and on the stage.
Here is a video of us. Wheelchair & Roller Dance Owl performance at the Gala show of the Miss Wheelchair Canada 2018 on August 25th, 2018 with my lovely three Roller Owls & with beautiful candidates from Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and other areas.
Thanks for the inspiration ladies. Thanks to all the organizers. Special thanks to outstanding person Olesya Kornienko. Thanks to Roundhouse Community centre for having us. God bless you all. I wish Wheelchair Community will get more help from the society.
DANCE everyone and Never give up!
with love, Lana Shahar

Another of my dreams came true and I am glad to announce about the collaboration with the Wheelchair Community. I’m going to help with the dance choreography workshops for Miss Wheelchair Canada 2018. Couple of my students and I will be performing with the candidates at the final show. It is such a blessing. I am so happy and so excited about it.
The event is free. Please come, vote, enjoy and support!
With love, Lana

The “Roller Skating Fun” summer 2018 project has been created from our love and passion for roller skating. We skate in different styles, we dance, and we play various games on roller skates. We skate alone, with partners, and in groups. We skate slalom – around cones and doing other tricks. Roller skating keeps us creative, healthy and happy. Roller skating is like a rainbow in the sky – colorful and magical. Just try it! Lana and the skate crew.
Children choreography – Lana Shahar, Partner roller skating routine choreography – Lana Shahar & Mo Sanders.
We appreciate Mo Sanders greatly for his cooperation in the production of this project.

We continue skate classes during the summer though all advanced students from the performance group (Silver owls) are having skills tests in June. Everyone will be tested in 20 movements. For the stage performances they need to have no less than 80 points for each movement performed. Here Owl Dasha is showing one of the artistic sets and spins that Owls have learned.
