Dance With Us Ottawa, Ottawa’s premier Competitive Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio, is pleased to announce that Rogers TV will be at Canadance Championship 2014 on September 20th. Broadcasting from the Ottawa Convention Center, the show will have informative and colourful commentary that ensures that you will be able to stay on top of all of the action. Commentary will be provided by seasoned host and ballroom champion Pierre Allaire* , who also happens to be a very special friend and mentor to the Dance With Us Ottawa Studio. His co-host is well-known local TV personality Terrilynn Rader. It should be noted that when the Crystal Leaf Ballroom and Latin Dance Championship was broadcast on Rogers TV Toronto it was the highest-rated program on Rogers TV for two years running! There is high expectation that the Rogers TV broadcast of the Canadance 2014 Championships, an event located right here in Ottawa, will be as well received. This is show is not to be missed!!
Canadance will be filmed “Live to Tape”. This means that while they will film live as it happens, it will be made into episodes and aired at a later date. Unfortunately we have no idea when they will air them, although souces inform us that usually it takes at least a month to finish the editing. If you will be at the show, either participating or as a spectator, be sure to get your “glam” on. Then watch to see yourselves on the screen in the coming months!
Here are some highlights from Canadance 2013:
*Pierre Allaire — Celebrity Host (Montreal) And Dance With Us Ottawa Studio Mentor
- 12 times Canadian Champion in Professional Standard and Latin
- Rising Star Latin Champion at Blackpool Dance Festival
- 10-Dance Finalist at World Championship
- Recipient of “The Feather Award, for the Most Outstanding Couple, Outside U.S.A”
- Recipient of “Legends of Dance Award”
No announcement of the special Rogers Canadance 2014 broadcast would be complete without a mention of Pierre’s co-host Terri-Lynne Rader.
After meeting her wonderful husband and dance partner Chris, the couple quickly moved through the ranks and represented Canada in professional Ballroom and Latin dance competitions all over North America. TL spent 5 years as co-host of a LIVE daily “lifestyles” talk show called Daytime Ottawa, and host of the Style File on Ottawa Living at Rogers TV Ottawa. TL has been a contributor for CBC’s Steven & Chris Show, as well as CBC’s Living in Ottawa and BOLD Network’s Creative Block.
