November 3, 2012 - 7:00pm

Let yourself be drawn into the mystical and magical world of gods and goddesses as the mythical story of Calligatta is revealed through dance with the elegance of colourful costumes, captivating music, and the fittingly beautiful setting. Feel it ignite the fiery passion within you. Discover the universal message that this story brings. Follow Calligatta on her risky journey as she takes on the test put before her by her own creator, Zeus. She must accept his challenge and prove herself to Zeus if she is to satisfy the dream of having her own island, Mataki Mou. Even the gods and goddesses who all love her wonder if Calligatta's compassion, pure heart and inner strength will be enough to carry her safely through the darkness she must overcome. For an audience that is looking to be moved and inspired, this is something totally new and exclusive for the stage in Fergus. Not only will the audience have the pleasure of experiencing this original work by a local dance talent; Voula is bringing male belly dance superstar Alexandros from Greece to add his own energy, style and charisma to the production. Cats Anonymous Rescue and Adoption seems a good fit for the charity of choice for this notably feline production. The registered charity is home to adoptable cats which have either been rescued or surrendered to the agency. Voula indicates some of the dancing will represent the graceful, elegant, yet slinky way cats have of moving, Voula also loves Cats!

Christina Pilgrim - Ascent for Alzheimer's

At 19,340 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest mountain on the continent of Africa. More than 130 Canadians
have literally climbed mountains in the fight against Alzheimer’s, reaching for the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro as part of
Ascent for Alzheimer’s
. On September 15th, 2009, Christina Pilgrim will be joining nine other Canadians in Tanzania at the
base of Mount Kilimanjaro for the 11th annual “Ascent for Alzheimer’s” fundraising climb. Our goal is to raise $10,000
each for the Alzheimer Society. All of the funds I raise will go specifically to the Alzheimer Society of Guelph-Wellington.

TERPSICHORE - The next Show

Some of you (close to Voula) may be aware that she has been working on her new show, for close to a year now. Not
many people have a complete understanding of what the new show is all about. Voula has kept tight-lipped about
her biggest production ever - Terpsichore. Terpsichore is one of the nine Muses of ancient Greece, she is the
Muse of dancing, dramatic chorus, and later of lyric poetry. She is the mother of the Sirens with the river-god
Achelous. She is also occasionally mentioned as the mother of Linus by Apollo.

This new show performances will be finalized with it's first stop in London, then Guelph, Mississauga and Toronto.
Much of the work has already begun, so stay tuned, more show details will be released as they become available.
