  • Duane Daines and his partner Natalie Brooks brought down the house Saturday night. Plain and simple. Emotional, endearing, and fun!  Thanks Duane for stepping up to take part in this incredible event.  And to his partner Natalie, who was injured, limping, and in pain, I can only say that you dug deep and performed like the star you are.  Congratulations to everyone involved in making this event happen every year.  This year, funds raised go to support  Canada Games Celebration Plaza, a legacy of the games that will be a gathering place for our community for years to come.

    You can’t describe the energy in the room.  It’s quite electric because everyone attending knows someone competing and is well aware of the amount of work involved to get to a place that you can put on a dance performance for 1,000 people.   That combined with the fact that these community members are not dancers or performers.  Congratulations to Todd Simenson, with dance partner Jinelle Themig, who won the technical dance award… and to Cindy Mandrusiak (with dance partner Dale Tosczak) who won in the other very important category… she raised the most funds!

    The judges task was difficult because each dance performance was unique and special.  A shoutout to everyone who took part; Mellisa Hollingsworth with Michael Myroniuk, Carla MacLeod with David Joseph, Cari MacLean with Jone Lam, John Young with Jody Liptak, and Troy Gillard with Olya Joseph.

    Todayville will feature some of the dances including Duane and Natalie’s winning performance throughout the week!

  • For someone who spends his days shining the spotlight on others, it’s an uncomfortable feeling to step onto the “other” side of the camera.  But that’s exactly what rdnewsNOW, Big 105 and 106.7 The Drive News Director Troy Gillard did when he was asked to support the 2019 Canada Winter Games effort to build Celebration Plaza.  The fact that his support would require a vast amount of courage as he took on the task of Celebrity Dancer is all the more impressive!  Fortunately for Troy.. he had an amazing teacher in Olya Joseph of the Dando Dance Company in Calgary.. and he had a love for Elvis that was just waiting to come out!

    Proceeds from the 2018 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off will help build an incredible new park in downtown Red Deer.  The Canada Games Celebration Plaza will be headquarters for our entire community during the 2019 Canada Winter Games.  Then the park will anchor future events and become a permanent and critical fixture for community building events for decades to come!

    Thanks to rdnewsNOW / Big 105 / 106.7 The Drive… for sharing Troy’s hidden talents with Central Alberta for Celebration Plaza!  Thank you for helping us develop a beautiful new asset for our downtown, our community, and our future.
