Many new townhouses are being built on Marc Chagall Ave. and the Cavendish Mall re-development site. The Côte Saint-Luc Aquatic and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven Ave.) is full of new and exciting programs. The pools are being used for leisure, competitive and fitness purposes from infant to senior to the physically challenged, who are all taking advantage of a facility that was built to provide service to all. Programs offered include swim team, master’s swim team for adults, synchronized swimming, aqua fitness, water polo, Red Cross swimming lessons, scuba and more. Our fitness room is a great place to keep in shape. The satellite library is being used by children participating in other programs in the building and by their parents as well. The dance studio, activity rooms, seniors centre, and gymnasium are all bustling with activity.
On the cultural/artistic side, the Côte Saint Luc Dramatic Society production of the musical Grease in late January was an outstanding success with seven sold-out shows. There was such an overwhelming demand for tickets that we may remount the show in the fall. We would not have been able to produce such a professional production without our talented director Anisa Cameron, and musical director Nick Burgess. Our next production to be presented in May will be Norm Foster’s comedy Office Hours.
The Dramatic Society will also be offering a two-week theatre intensive day camp in July to be run by Anisa Cameron for children ages 10 to 15. The goal will be a theatrical presentation on the last day of camp. This initiative will be for youth who are not only interested in acting, but in all aspects of the production of a play.
