Moose Jaw Festival of Dance Doris Sitter Memorial Scholarship


Doris Sitter was instrumental in the creation of the Moose Jaw Festival of Dance.  She taught dance in Moose Jaw for over 60 years and many of her students went on to open studios of their own throughout Saskatchewan and Canada.  Doris always recognized and emphasized the value in dance education and competition performance – not only for the “front and center” dancers but for the back-row chorus dancers as well.  Established in 2011, the Moose Jaw Festival of Dance is pleased to offer this scholarship in her memory.
