Elementz Dance Studio owner Kendra Melanson has been known for her long hair as she’s danced in Canada and Internationally. Oct 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of her grandma’s loss of life after a battle with breast cancer. In loving memory of “Baba Lim” on Oct 13, Kendra will be donating her full 19 inches of curly hair to Wigs for Kids.
“Im So excited to be donating my hair tomorrow in loving memory of my grandma “baba lim” who died in October 1986 when I was 2. ” Kendra says as she contemplates the big cut”For all the laughs we never had and memories we never built I hope that this wig will help restore a bit of confidence to a child that might need it after losing their hair due to chronic illness. May they laugh and build memories and enjoy life to its fullest. My dance moves may look a little different without my hair whipping around lol …but the heart is still the same. Let’s enjoy life and share joy whenever we can!”
Wigs for kids is a Canadian no-profit that provides the wigs for free to kids impacted by chronic illness who may be in need of a wig. The process to make a wig is not easy and can cost up to $1800.To donate directly cost please see www.wigsforkids.ca

Dear Amazing GX Dance Studio Families!

ELEMENTZ STUDIO = DANCE + Now DJ/Music Production
Your current dance class remaining exactly the same with same teacher and location and time and class members just now with the name ELEMENTZ STUDIO giving you more opportunities to learn another elements of hip hop: DJ/Music Production
Why the switch?
Since 2009 GX has functioned in 2 ways in Medicine Hat with both founded by Aaron and Kendra Melanson
- GX Dance Studio- Offering Dance Lessons
- GX Canada – a Ministry of Youth With A Mission
It’s with a thankful heart that at the end of this year we finish our time with Youth With A Mission. To help with the clarity of switch of Directorship of GX Canada Youth With A Mission Ministry to Patan Dixon, we are transitioning GX Dance Studio to now be called Elementz Dance Studio beginning January 1 2021. In 2021, Patan will continue to lead the Youth With a Mission Side of GX Canada with teams that are trained in dance and evangelism.

GX Dance Studio Recital May 14 2011 @Crescent Heights Theatre
Aaron & Kendra~
Saturday night was *awesome*! My daughter had such a great time & I loved that the performances were set up to be fun, not competitive or too serious. This was exactly the kind of dance program that I was looking for this year. I LOVED how you included adult breakers as well – it gave everyone such a bigger & better appreciation for the skills that it takes!!! Aaron, you were amazing!!
Thank you so much for all of your hard work this year – we appreciate it so much.- GX DANCE STUDIO STUDENT PARENT
The Year End Recital was a HUGE party on May 14 2011 at Crescent Heights Theatre. Congratulations to all the students. You had a great year and raised 315 pounds of food for the Medicine Hat Food Bank at the Year End Party.
