Benkade by Ballet Creole
Benkade is a special presentation for Black History Month that explores the vibrant cultural heritage of Guinea’s Malinke people. For many of the dance pieces, a strong presence of the drums provides a rhythmic structure within which dance socialization takes place. Dancers, musicians and listeners are drawn together in the experience.
Ladies Day Vaca 2020
The annual Ladies Day is back at Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area. The fun-filled day starts at 10:00 AM with long-john yoga, followed by hitting the hills for some fun games and mini-competitions. The day will be filled with a fantastic welcome gift, specialty drinks, snowshoeing available (please bring your own shoes!) and an après ski and dance with Arden and the Tourists, a great live band based out of Collingwood.
Muskoka is already making quite a name for itself in the craft beer and wine industry, with a number of local establishments receiving national recognition on a number of occasions.
