    The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization rooted in the protection and recovery of today’s most innocent and vulnerable – our children. The Centre is comprised of a collective that is driven by the courage to support children, youth, and their families affected by abuse, enabling them to build enduring strength and overcome adversity. We work in a collaborative partnership with the Central Region Children's Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre and the RCMP. Together we harness our collective courage to provide children with supported recovery. It takes courage and bravery for a child to share their story of abuse, for families to bring their children forward, to believe, to listen without judgement, and to seek justice. Supporting the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre today is an investment in the promise and possibility of a healthy future for our children and our community.

    Celebrity Dancer Alex Wood mistaken for 2nd pro on the floor!

  • As co-owner of Ryde RD Spin Cycling, Alex Wood may have had a slight athletic advantage over even the most physically fit celebrities in the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off.  Wood also trained as a dancer when she was growing up.  Did all that pay off?  Well some of the judges and many of the spectators were under the impression their might be two pros on the floor when Wood and pro partner Peter Samoila performed.  Check out this fast and flawless salsa / cha cha mix.  Amazing doesn’t do it justice!

    My Story…

    I grew up here in Red Deer, this is home. It took me a while to return after high school but I am so happy to be back. I co-own Ryde RD Spin Studio. Red Deer was the perfect place for my husband Dave and I to start our business.

    I studied at Montana Tech and graduated as a petroleum engineer. I met my husband there and we made our way to Calgary for work. After two and half years, I decided that a desk job wasn’t for me so we packed our bags, moved to Asia and travelled overseas. After too much fun in the sun, we decided to move to Red Deer to start Ryde.

    Supporting our clients and the community is very important to us. We’ve hosted many charity Ryde’s including one for the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off.

    Over the next few months, I’ll be putting my travel bug on hold, trading my spin shoes in for dancing shoes, and trying to regain my dancing skills from my teenage years. I’m honored to be a part of this event and passionate about the cause.

    Celebrity Dance Off an opportunity for Vinnie Taylor to make a wake up call about domestic violence

  • The charity at the heart of the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off was the Friends of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.  The entire reason for this event is to raise money for the charitable cause, but perhaps even more importantly to raise awareness about.  It certainly has raised awareness for the Friends this year… a non-profit that supports our health care system with the creature comforts that turn a hospital room into something more healing.  From toys, books and stuffies for young patients to curtains, carts and monitors.. the Friends do more than most imagine.

    But when Vinnie Taylor and Olya Joseph were paired off at the beginning of the 2019 journey, they discovered another cause dear to their hearts.  The professional communicator and the professional dancer decided they’d try to impact the community in a different way by sharing their own early life experiences with the community.  Both grew up in homes with abuse.  They drew from these brutal experiences to bring a different style of dance to the floor in 2019.  Maybe the fact this performance featured celebrity Vinnie Taylor made it even more astounding.  Anyone expecting the same cheery approach they might hear on Real Country 95.5 would have been shocked.  Many were shocked.  Just look on the faces of those on the edge of the dance floor.  In all the years of the Celebrity Dance Off, this Rumba / Paso Doble by Vinnie Taylor and Olya Joseph was by far the most intense performance we’ve ever seen.  Experience a side of this celebrity you had no idea existed.

    My Story…

    Hi I’m Vinnie Taylor! One half of the Real Wakeup on Real Country 95.5.

    I’m so excited to be dancing this year. I am watching all of the classics, Grease, Dirty Dancing and of course Hairspray. I admit that one of my favourite shows is Dancing with the Stars and I’ve always envisioned myself doing the paso doble. I hope I get to wear a pair of tear away pants.

    I grew up around Alberta and loved living in Red deer. I work with several organizations like 100 men red deer, the United Way, Aspire Special Needs, and Ronald McDonald House. I was Mr. February in Dad Bod For a Rad Cause Movember calendar. Every year I “Walk a mile in her shoes “ for Women’s Outreach Centre.

    I have two left feet so my dance partner has her work cutout. I used to be able to bend over, but not so much anymore. To call this a challenge is definitely an understatement.

    I am very honoured and hope to make everyone proud. Let the dancing begin… cha cha cha!
