Meeting the late Ola Skanks prior to her induction into the Encore! Dance Hall of Fame was as eye-opening as it was an honour. In this excerpt she shares her key to happiness: "making your own way".

A sample of what we'll soon be sharing on the Hall of Fame website .

Rina Singha’s extraordinary career as a solo Kathak performer and choreographer spans her entire adult life. Recognized as one of Canada’s eminent dance artists, she has earned international acclaim and recognition for the elegant beauty and purity of her technique and the skill and wisdom of her interpretative powers.
https://www.encoredancehalloffame.com/

Coming to Canada in 1965 at a time when most non-western dance was seen as “quaint” or “exotic”, Singha made it her life’s mission to ensure that the beauty of her art form would be recognized and appreciated both for its depth of technique and its message. Rina was among the first of Canada’s dance artists to work extensively with deaf children in the 1970s. Rina Singha’s career as a trailblazer in dance has been recognized with numerous national and international awards including the Pioneer Skills for Change du Maurier Award, the William Kilbourn Lifetime Achievement Award, the Dance Ontario Award, the Grant Community Achievers 2008 award, and the Internationally Juried Award for Excellence in Performing Arts for her Biblical dances. At age 81, Ms. Singha continues to choreograph, dance, teach and mentor.

Jerry and Joan Lozinski, long-time supporters of dance in Canada, have been generous philanthropists to an array of dance organizations that cover the arc of a dancer’s career from training to retirement and beyond.
https://www.encoredancehalloffame.com/

Canada’s National Ballet School, the National Ballet of Canada and the Dancer Transition Resource Centre have all been recipients of the Lozinski’s support that has enabled the organizations to continue to raise the bar in the field of dance. In addition, the Lozinski’s have also been involved with or have supported the National Arts Centre, Citadel + Compagnie, Peggy Baker Dance Projects, the Canadian Senior Artists Resource Network, Art Gallery of Ontario, the Toronto International Art Fair, Opera Atelier, the Gardiner Museum, the Royal Conservatory of Music, and the University of Toronto. Dance and the Arts in Canada have been enriched immensely by the support of patrons like Joan and Jerry Lozinski.
