Dancing in the Rain at Beer Fest
The rain didn’t dampen our spirits (or dilute the beer) when the crew was mingling and performing at Forest City Beer Fest in front of Covent Garden Market.
We had a great time dancing in the rain and making the best of the slippery concrete. Check out our photo album on Facebook to see some pics!
UWO Alumni Kids Workshop
Children and parents gathered at The Wave on Western University campus for a performance and workshop by Ill at Will last month. The children were a joy to teach and some of the parents even joined in!
The event was a great success and we all had fun “Breakin’ Into Summer”.
Canada Walk of Fame Festival
October 1 was a beautiful fall day to celebrate great Canadians at the Canada Walk of Fame Festival! This show at Yonge-Dundas Square was longer than our usual performance so we had time to introduce the crew, introduce our dance and its elements, and even had some time for a little impromptu magic by our buddy (not to mention world class speaker & entertainer) Keith Brown who had travelled there with us.
It was great to be back at the CWOF Festival after the fun we had last year. Hope to perform there again in 2016!

TVO Kids at the Harbourfront
This post will be more pics than words, but suffice to say we enjoyed the lakeside view during the TVO Kids festival at the Harbourfront. Performing for children is awesome because they love breakdancing and are so expressive!
One Walk To End Cancer – Finish Line Festival
On Sept 12 Ill at Will performed during the finish line festivities of the Shoppers Drug Mart One Walk To End Cancer. Participants finished their walk at Cabana Pool Bar in Toronto and were greeted by an array of entertainment options including breakdancing and synchronized swimming.
What a pleasure to be a part of an event that raised $7.5 MILLION to help conquer cancer!
