Did you know that this is Masterworks' 25th year of teaching dance? Over the course of the past 25 years, Masterworks has taught thousands of children and youth (and a growing number of adults too!) to get in touch with their creativity, to exercise their bodies, learn new skills, make new friends, and to learn how to work as parts of teams greater than themselves. But more importantly, Masterworks has managed to achieve these goals while also demonstrating a passion for God through teachers who are committed to loving God and to sharing God's love with others through kindness, compassion, and grace.
This year, as a way of celebrating Masterworks' 25th anniversary, the dance studio is committing to participating in 25 acts of kindness. Nine acts have already been carried out and we are working on the 10th! Please see the 25th anniversary tab on this website for complete details about what has already been done, but note that completed acts include the running of dance, art, and theatre camps in Shamattawa First Nation Reserve, a painted mural for the West End Biz,, and a Winnipeg Harvest collection. The current project is the collection of goody and supply-filled shoeboxes to send to our partner community in the Dominican Republic.
Please join Masterworks in making this your own year of intentionally carrying out random acts of kindness. Plan with your kids, then go out into the community and make a difference! Afterwards, share your experiences by dropping a note in the drop box located at the Masterworks front desk explaining what you did. Periodically over the course of the year, anecdotes of your experiences delivering random acts of kindness will be shared on the blog. Or perhaps you yourself will be the recipient of a random act of kindness and you would like to share that too! Get creative and have fun; let's share God's love by working together to make our community and our city a better place!
