Highland Dancer Twins Share ASDC Athlete of the Month honours

Avatar

  • The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athletes of the Month for December 2018 are Brianna and Gwendolyn Kehler.  Brianna and Gwendolyn are 14 year old twin sisters, Red Deer residents and competitive Highland Dancers.  Brianna and Gwendolyn are Grade 9 students at Hunting Hills High School, and they dance with the Red Deer School of Highland Dancing with teachers Jacquie Munawych and Kimberly Biggelaar.

    This past summer, the largest Highland dancing competition in the world, the ScotDance Canada Championship Series, was held in Calgary. At this event, Brianna won first overall in the Highlands Dances (precise and sharp, Highlands dances have military roots and were traditionally only performed by males), and Gwendolyn first overall in the National Dances (more fluid and graceful, derived from Scottish and Celtic folk dances), for their age grouping in the Intermediate category. Since moving up into Premier level (the highest level of Highland Dance) this past summer, both girls have been holding their own, with top-three placings in the three competitions they have competed in as Premiers dancers to date. Their current goal is to qualify at the Alberta Provincial Championship to represent Alberta at the Canadian Closed Championship and the World Highland Dance Championships in August.

    Both Brianna and Gwendolyn have high academic standing in Hunting Hills High School’s Advanced Placement program. With Briana and Gwedolyn’s strong work ethic, their undeniable athletic abilities and their training experiences with ASDC-Central and Red Deer School of Highland Dance, the Kehlers will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in her Highland Dance careers!  

    ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.

  • The support of donors and sponsors ensures the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra can create and inspire the next generation of musicians. In particular, we provide professional level performance opportunities for emerging artists, such as Harbour Lehocky, to facilitate their development as musicians.’

    Harbour will be making her debut performance with the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra at the June 8th ‘Season Finale’ concert in recognition of being a 2018 winner of the Red Deer Festival of the Performing Arts.

    Harbour started violin at the age of six, almost 9 years ago, and continues to ask her parents why they didn’t get her started with lessons earlier! She is the concertmaster for the Rosedale Valley Strings Orchestra, conducted by Naomi Delafield, and a member of the Burman University Symphony Orchestra with whom she toured Western Canada in 2018 and California earlier this year. Harbour attended the Orford Musique Academy in Quebec in the summer of 2018, funded by the Lacombe Endowment Grant and will attend several international camps and competitions as well as perform a solo piece with a youth orchestra in Austria this summer.

    This busy young musician is also a provincial medals recipient in swimming, holds two provincial records in breaststroke, and is a 2016 Alberta Summer Games bronze medal recipient in triathlon.

    Join the audience (tickets remain available) and help the RDSO welcome Harbour Lehocky to the stage!
