Please join us to Celebrate the Life of our beloved Sonia Ellis; the Artistic Director, Owner and loving Matriarch of Seymour Dance.
On Sunday, January 13th, 2019 we ask you to join us at the Kay Meek Theatre in West Vancouver from 3:00-6:00PM to celebrate her life and legacy. Her celebration will include a show teeming with live music, singing, dances, poetry and many memories shared. The performances will be from 3:00-4:30pm in the theatre, followed by a reception with refreshments from 4:30-6:00pm in the lobby. As our focus is a day of celebration, we invite you to wear colours instead of traditional black.
Sonia's battle with cancer ended peacefully in the early morning on Tuesday, December 18th, 2018 in the company of members of her immediate family and close friends. Sonia's courage and sweet disposition remained evident right to the end.
We look forward to all coming together to pay tribute to Sonia's life, passion for dance and deep love and affection that she gave to all who knew her and were connected by her community.
We invite you to bring a photograph of you and Sonia to add to our photo display in the lobby. This photo feature will then be displayed in her studio, Seymour Dance.
We would also like to ask that in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to «Sonia's Dream Fund». This fund is a scholarship that was created in her name, as Sonia always dreamed of being able to support students who are passionate about dance and the fine arts. There will be one graduating scholarship awarded this June for a student to use towards post-secondary training in the Fine Arts, there will also be a junior scholarship awarded to a student continuing at Seymour Dance to help continue their education. At this time cheque donations are accepted, if an online option becomes available we will let you know as soon as possible.
If you have photos that you would like to have included in our slide show, please email a PNG or JPEG version of the photo to [email protected]
prior to Thursday, January 10th, 2019.
