Students from Expressions Dance Arts have accomplished some impressive things. During their tenures at the nearly two-decade-old academy, they’ve racked up championships at national competitions, guest performed at NFL, CFL, NBA games as well as at Disney World, and never once used the word “imply” when they meant “infer.” They’ve also gone on to success after their time at the centre. Some have later trained at the National Ballet School, danced with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, and studied musical theatre at Sheridan College, while others have participated in the opening and closing ceremonies of the Canada Games.
It’s easy to see why they’ve flourished. The centre, with its professional-quality flooring, sound, and lighting, is tailor-made for preparing for a career in the performing arts. And it doesn’t hurt that classes are led by instructors affiliated with a dozen dance and cheerleading organizations, including CDTA and the NFL.
At Spinal Decompression Centre and C.A.R.E. Chiropractic & Acupuncture, experienced teams of doctors, physiotherapists, and registered massage therapists unite to realign spines and combat muscle and joint ailments. Healing regimens kick off with a full spine exam, during which doctors study the spine's topography to chart a treatment route. Doctors can then counsel patients with therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes, such as giving up recreational boulder rolling, to ameliorate pain.
While massage therapist and reiki master Sherri Smith bears certifications in a broad range of techniques, her singular goal is to heal her clients holistically.

Through these treatments, Sherri can help her clients realign their bodies, spirits, and minds without unnatural chemicals or fashionable gimmicks.
