Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet congratulates RWB School Director Arlene Minkhorst on her recent YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Award nomination.
"Over the past three decades of her career as an arts educator, directly through her own teaching which she continues to actively engage in on a daily basis, as well as through her guidance in various leadership roles, Arlene Minkhorst has created opportunities for thousands of Manitobans to enjoy the many benefits of dance. Some of those whose lives she has touched have even gone on to enjoy careers performing on stages around the world or choreographing for major international ballet companies. Regardless of the eventual acclaim of her students, Arlene works tirelessly to ensure that quality dance training is accessible to as many people as possible while at the same time insisting that every student is entitled to the highest calibers of training in the pursuit of their own dreams."
The YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Awards Program is an inspirational
and exciting celebration of talent, achievement, imagination and
innovation, honouring Manitoba women who have made a unique and
exemplary contribution to the development of others in our community. The 35th Annual Women of Distinction Awards ceremony will be held on May 4, 2011 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
