Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet would like to
congratulate RWB Soloist Yosuke Mino on winning second prize for dance at the
International Solo Tanz Theater Festival in Stuttgart, Germany. The festival
ran from March 17 to 20 and Mino managed to find time to fly to Germany during
the RWB’s western tour of Wonderland. Mino choreographed and
performed his new work titled Koji.
“The best part about being involved in the festival,” said Mino “was being able to meet and talk to people in the contemporary dance world, a world that really interests me. I am quite honoured to win second prize for dance.”
Rick Frost, CEO, The Winnipeg Foundation announcing the results of the

Thank you to everyone who supported The Winnipeg Foundation’s 90-Hour Giving Challenge with a gift to the David Moroni School Endowment in support of the RWB School Professional Division.

Students of the RWB School Professional Division are our dance teachers, choreographers and RWB Company members of tomorrow. Tuition alone is not enough to help these young artists reach their goals. YOU make it happen through your support.
“I was thrilled to hear about the success of The Winnipeg Foundation’s 90-Hour Giving Challenge! Together, our efforts to build the David Moroni School Endowment Fund will ensure that our young dancers have every opportunity to fully develop their talents and become the artists that they aspire to be. Thank you to everyone for your generous support!” Arlene Minkhorst Director, RWB School
