Room named in honour of Iro Valaskakis-Tembeck

By Samantha Mehra

A new multi-function room at Montréal’s future Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Cultural Centre has been named in honour of late dance artist, teacher and historian Iro Valaskakis-Tembeck. At a Côte-des-Neiges―Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Borough meeting, members voted unanimously in favour of the name. Tembeck, who was a resident of the neighbourhood, helped found the dance department at the Université du Québec à Montréal, where she became a dance historian in 1980.
