Thank you, dear sponsors, for all your help and cooperation in materializing our project.
Video/ photo shooting of Roller Dance Owl students first achievements were a great
success! Roller Dance Owl students had their first experience of star performances
showcasing the results of their hard work, and tried roles of models and actors and even
got some special treats. We already have important new goals for the future and will
keep up with the hard work for new achievements!
First of all, our special thank you goes to Kathie Chiu, the major of Salvation Army, Richmond BC for partnership and collaboration! Considering the fact that there are no roller
skating rinks in British Columbia, we wouldn’t have a place to practice if Salvation Army
didn’t let us use the facility that became Roller Dance Owl home.
We are so grateful to DJ Aaries and singer Supa Peach (Arizona, USA) for offering us
to dance to their song “Life of The Party”. Maybe one day Roller Dance Owl students
will dance at Supa Peach’s concert on a big stage! Download this awesome song
