On Vancouver Island with Pantuso Dance

FOUR PLANES.
TWO (and a half) DAYS.
NINE CLASSES.
AMAZING PEOPLE AND DANCERS.
GREAT, GREAT STUDIO AND FLOOR.
AWESOME RAW FOOD SPOT.
SUPER COOL HOTEL.

= Much Appreciation to Lindsay Sterk at Pantuso Dance for bringing me in as their first guest artist of the year! What a phenomenal few days this was. I had such a great time reaching & playing with all of the tappers! THANK YOU!

MY TRIP RECAP, IN PICTURE:
I rode on two planes each way. First on Air Canada, then Central Mountain Air. The CMA plane was the smallest plane I’ve ever been on – I think it seated about 20 people, though there were only about 10 of us on board. It was awesome. This was my window view (everyone had a window seat!)

Pantuso put me up in a super cool hotel with super cool tea stocked in my kitchenette called Two Leaves and a Bud. I’m not usually such a sucker for cool packaging, but theirs is brilliantly enticing. (Cut to me immediately heating a pot of water. Delicious as it looked!)

The hotel had a spa, too. This Spa Menu was waiting for me on my bed. I was really tempted to pop in for a quick massage, but I instead eased my tired muscles in my soaking tub. Ahhhh…

Right on the river. Went for a stroll on a trail as soon as I got in. Absolutely stunning! Nothing like those beautiful ripples to bring that calm, cleansing energy. Dig!

How cool is this for a sushi restaurant?! Wonderful people, establishment, and food. Yum.

  1. So glad you enjoyed the Old House Suites and spa and our beautiful Comox Valley. We loved having you here. The kids had an amazing time dancing with you. Some of us have been fortunate enough to witness your beautiful storytelling when you have been performing in Vancouver and we appreciate you sharing your gifts with our kids.

    • Hi, Bonnie!

      Thank you again SO much. I really did have such a wonderful time and loved every second of working with Pantuso’s dancers. Everyone was so friendly with one another in class. A great, cooperative atmosphere. So fun to REACH with everyone!! And what a pleasant surprise when I got back to the hotel late the second evening to find a lovely gift package from the Auxiliary Society. So thoughtful. You all really took care of me while I was there and I so appreciated your hospitality.

      Many thanks!
      ~Jessie
