Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Samantha Ketsa, and I have joined the DSW team this spring as an administrative assistant. Originally from Edmonton and now based in Calgary, I am utterly delighted to support the dance community across Alberta in tandem with forging my own path as a dance artist.
It has been a wild time transitioning into a new role over the past few months. But, nothing has brought me joy quite like getting acquainted with our community and moving forward boldly under Sasha’s intrepid leadership. I want to say a warm welcome to all of our new members who have joined our newsletter updates, participated in Sasha’s Instagram Live classes, and engaged with us via the mighty Zoom for The Talking, Thinking, Dancing Body – Calgary. I think I can speak on behalf of all of us at DSW when I say that your time, presence, and support are deeply appreciated.
I am thrilled to continue getting acquainted with our members, partners, and friends as DSW keeps the spirit and innovation of our 40th anniversary celebrations alive. You can learn a little bit more about me here or reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever feel so inclined.
Yours in dance and optimism,
(photo of me by Sasha, sorting through 40 years of archived posters, programs, and media kits in our cSPACE office!)
