Stephanie Ballard is a choreographer, educator and dance advocate. She is the director of the Winnipeg Dance Preservation Initiative, core faculty of Winnipeg’s School of Contemporary Dancers and artistic advisor to Q DANCE. This September, at the St. Boniface Cathedral in Winnipeg, Ballard presents Landscape Dancing, a spiritual movement expression honouring the beatification of Mother Theresa. In 1982, Ballard choreographed an interpretive work for Mother Theresa, when she was presented with the St. Boniface General Hospital Research Foundation International Award, for an audience of 21,000. The upcoming performance will include Robyn Thomson Kacki, whose mother Faye Thomson, C.M., co-director of the School of Contemporary Dancers, was in the 1982 work and meets with Ballard every Thursday to enjoy tea and snacks. These mini quiches always make an appearance.
