Wheelchair & Roller Dance Owl performance – Miss Wheelchair Canada 2018

ALL PICTURES AND VIDEOS HERE: >>

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

Roller Dance Owl with Daya – Sit Still Look Pretty and guest Mo Sanders

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!

Roller Dance Owls in 3M Wonder Commercial Shoot

It was so exciting when one of the foreign producers contacted me and invited us to participate in Commercial Shoot with my students. Not everyone can skate hard – the Roller dance Owls can! On Tuesday, March 13th we had a Shoot and skated non stop for 5 hours. The kids were so tired, but did their best! Good job everyone! I am so proud and so happy for my Roller Owls. They had a great experience and they got their first pay cheque. I am so grateful to my students and their parents for their trust and belief in me, for being part of RDO. 

Get ready! Our roller adventure is going to be fascinating!
