What others are saying about PSB & INTERPLAY
It is with heartfelt sorrow to inform you that Anna McCowan-Johnson passed on August 15th, 2020.
Anna was the founder of Interplay School of Dance in 1983. In 2008, Anna stepped down as Artistic Director and I was honoured at Anna's request to take over her reputable school and to continue her legacy. I hope I can continue to make her proud by passing on her passion to each and every student that passes through the studio doors.
Anna's portraits can be seen by the office as well as by the door inside Studio 1 at INTERPLAY. It was important to me to keep her present each and every day. Miss Anne, as she was known by her students, was an incredible teacher and she loved all of her students and staff. Many teachers and pianists are still working for the school to this day - me being one of them.
A scholarship has been named after Miss Anne and I was thrilled that she was able to present this scholarship to one of our dedicated students at our annual recitals for several years. Anna was my mentor, employer, confidante and most of all my friend since 1984. She will never be forgotten and I will miss her very much. Rest in Peace Miss Anne. You will forever be remembered. - Miss Karen
