Annual Dance for Alex to take place in December

group kids dance
Montreal - Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Students and staff at Royal Vale School (5851 Somerled) in N.D.G. will once again honour the late Alex Porter-Rozmovits with their annual Dance for Alex on Friday, December 6 (8:30 am).

Alex was a bright, loving and thriving six-year-old kindergarten student who died suddenly on June 22, 2009 of a rare bacterial infection. The school has held a morning dance in his honour every December since 2010.

Joining the students for this year’s dance will be cross-country skier Alexis Turgeon. Turgeon is a nine-time member of the Canadian National Ski Team. To mark the dance’s 10th year, Alex’s parents, Roberta Porter and Peter Rozmovits, are asking the community to join them in raising money for Royal Vale School’s new fitness centre. Proceeds from the dance will be used to purchase training equipment, which will enhance student life for years to come.
