Dance for Alex

Montreal - Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Alex Porter-Rozmovits was a bright, loving and thriving six year old Royal Vale kindergarten student. Alex died suddenly on June 22, 2009 of a rare bacterial infection. His parents and his sisters Abby and Olivia miss him every day. Teacher Mme Yasmine noticed how he enjoyed dancing with his friends and with her. Royal Vale School (RVS) has hosted the “Dance for Alex” since 2010 in his memory. Every December, elementary school students, teachers and parents gather in the gym to dance and remember their fellow student. This year, Alex’s parents would like to take the opportunity to give back to the community and raise money in honour of RVS, Alex and the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation (MCCF).

Funds raised will be divided equally between RVS and MCCF.  The dance will be held on Friday, December 8 (8:30 am to 9:30 am.). Children will be led in dance and exercise by the McGill Cheerleaders and will be greeted by a surprise alumni member from the Montreal Canadiens.
