DKSL- Dancin' Kids Slave Lake- A Digital Economy Program Success Feature

Featuring Heather of DKSL

Today, we are pleased to feature Heather Auger, co-owner of Dancin' Kids Slave Lake. DKSL has been providing dance instruction since 1989 when it was founded by Mrs. Cathy Redgate. Heather, who was one of the first students at the studio, began dancing in 1992 when her family relocated to Slave Lake from Saskatchewan.

As she grew up, Heather developed a close bond with Mrs. Redgate and started teaching dance at the age of 14. Eventually, Mrs. Redgate expressed her desire to retire while Heather was attending university in Saskatoon. After graduating from University, Heather made the decision to return to Slave Lake and take over the studio in 2017.

DKSL Dancin' Kids Slave Lake specializes in teaching all styles of dance. Their classes are designed for all ages and skill levels. They strive to create an atmosphere where everyone can learn and have fun. Their instructors are highly experienced and dedicated to helping students reach their goals.

Recognizing the need for a website revamp, DKSL was offered the opportunity to join Community Futures' free Digital Economy Program. The outdated and difficult-to-navigate website prompted Heather to seek assistance from the Digital Service Squad.

Fatima Galvez- the Digital Service Squad of Community Futures created the new & modern DKSL website while Divine Kitchen- the Digital Economy Program Lead provided DKSL a detailed online audit, digital marketing strategies, and social media content ideas.

"Thanks to the Digital Service Squad members, the website has undergone significant improvements and is now easy to navigate", Heather said. Aside from the website revamp, Heather also gained valuable knowledge from the Digital Economy Program and Digital Main Street Online Courses, focusing on digital marketing strategies. These courses have equipped her with valuable insights and tools to enhance DKSL's online presence. Although the challenge of finding time to consistently post on digital platforms remains, Heather is continually striving to improve and explore new digital avenues for her business.
