Introducing MAria Pedrosa, our Zumba instructor.
Maria grew up Recife, a city located in northeast of Brazil, performing at cultural street festivals and shows. Strongly influenced by the folkloric musical atmosphere of her city, Maria passion for dance flourished at a very early age, still in her childhood, when she began dancing classic ballet and jazz. After immigrating to Canada in 1997, Maria continued her involvement with artistic dance. She taught Brazilian dance styles at Afro-Bahia Dance Studio, in Vancouver, BC, and performed in several shows and festivals, as well as participated in numerous workshops.
In 2001, Maria moved to Calgary and, in partnership with the Brazilian Community Association, created the Samba Brasil Heritage Dance Group. The Samba Brasil Heritage Dance Group has performed at many Calgary festivals, including Globalfest, The International Dance Day, The Lilac Festival, Heritage Day and Expolatino. Maria worked as Choreographer, Producer and Art Director for the group for five years. In 2006, Maria founded the Tropicart Brazilian Dance Group, a group that has also performed in the major Calgary festivals, even gaining a place in the cover page of the free newspaper 24 Hours in 2008 during the Sun & Salsa Festival. Apart from directing, choreographing and producing dance groups in festivals, Maria also has taught Samba classes at Latin Corner Dance Studio and at the South Fish Creek Recreation Association. In 2009, Maria decided to expand her portfolio and take a certification as Zumba instructor. Zumba is a fitness program that associates aerobic movements with the use of Latin rhythms. The Zumba approach introduces exercising through dance. It is a fun way to get in shape because each class is like a party.
Clothing and Textiles Bin
The clothing & textiles recyling bin has a new home at the Copperfield Hall Community parking lot under the flagpole (6 Copperstone Way S.E.). We encourage you to divert textiles from the landfill and bring them here. Thanks to those who have already made donations to the bin!
Items please need to be clean, dry & bagged for protection, including old or stained clothes, slightly worn clothing, socks (holes or no), footwear (1 or a pair), hats, backpacks, curtains, towels, linens, pillows, comforters, and even stuffed animals! Please note, No hard plastic toys as these are not a recyclable textile!
All usable items will be donated locally first, used internationally, and any unusable items will be shredded and recycled into new products! A portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the Community Association and Copperfield School.
- Did you know that over 10,000 tons of textiles was dumped into the City of Calgary landfill in 2014? That pile of clothes would be as tall as the Calgary Tower.
- 2019 marks the estimated timeline to bylaw textile waste being permitted into the city landfill.
- Who would have thought, blue jeans make far superior insulation for homes than any insulation currently being sold!
- Textiles can take of to 1000 years to decompose and through the process release chemicals and carbon dioxide into our environment.
- “My Grandma’s the original recycler! She thought of new uses for everyday items”
