A big shout-out and congratulations to our friends in dance, faculty members Karen Kaeja and Allen Kaeja, who are the 2019 winners of Dance Ontario's Lifetime Achievement Award.⁣

Lori Endes, Kaeja d'Dance Board President, says: "With 39 years of award-winning professional stage and dance film works, they are recognized leaders locally, nationally and internationally for breaking barriers between audience and performance through multi-cultural, multi-generational and economically inclusive performances, collaborations, and workshops."⁣

Karen and Allen shared the following: “We are more than honoured to be recognized with this incredible Award alongside so many of our heroes of dance in our province. 'Lifetime' makes us revel in all that can be in this infinite journey - a puzzle of ambiguity and curiosity in a creative life partnership that rides tides and sweeps of light and dark, texturing and colouring this exquisite togetherness.”⁣
