I love the Montreal Jazz Festival

Have I ever told you how much I love this city?  I may not take advantage of all it has to offer, but come jazz fest, I love to get out there as much as possible.   (Maybe I’m not as hard-core as others I know …. Pierre Hobson of KlaXson comes to mind!)  It’s a great opportunity to discover new music (all for free!) and to help support some really great local artists (buy their music!).  This year is exciting because I haven’t had any other obligations taking me away from the city during this 10-day period as I usually do.  I hope you have had the opportunity to soak up some music.  If not, there is still today and tomorrow.  B-52s for the closing show!!!  I don’t think I’ll try to get a spot at the actual stage.  I think I’ll just find a spot at another stage in front of a screen like I did for the Stevie Wonder concert.  I still get to enjoy the music while having room to breathe … and dance, of course.

I wanted to share with you some of my photos and videos from the festival so far.




Check out some of my videos from the shows I’ve seen on the Cadance YouTube channel.  There are more to be posted …. soon!

A reminder about Summer Classes  For this summer session, I will be adding a Pilates intro/refresher on the first day of class.  If you need to be reminded of the basic principles or if you or someone you know want to try Pilates, but are intimidated by jumping in to a group class, this is for YOU!  Be sure you reserve your spot …. only 8 spaces available.  Also, please note that the usual three levels will be combined into two:  Intermediate/Advanced and Beginning/Intermediate.
