Aenea Lakmaaker Prepares for World Tap Dance Championships

Aenea Lakmaaker is a 13 year old dancer from Nottawa. This spring, Lakmaaker was chosen to join Team Canada Dance, providing an opportunity to represent Canada at the International Dance organization World Tap Dance Championships to be held from September 23rd to 30th in Risea, Germany. Lakmaaker’s home studio is The Dance Room in Stayner.

“I am so excited to go and represent Canada!! Last year I was also on the team and we won Silver in the Children’s division” Lakmaaker said.

One of the popular activities at the World Championships is pin trading with the other dancers from countries from around the world.

“I recently learned that I could get some Canada pins from my local MPP” Lakmaaker said.

MPP Brian Saunderson, a past Olympian, was very happy to not only meet Aenea but to provide pins (as pictured below) to take to the World Championships.

From everyone in Nottawa, Discover Clearview and throughout Simcoe-Grey … Good luck Aenea!
