Whitewater paddle boarding! All this activity requires is a paddle-board and a paddle… and a helmet, safety vest, coordination, balance and super good upper and lower body strength! Good thing that Jordan and Ryleigh are professional dancers! Once they are able to stand up, which is not as easy as it sounds, they will ride down the current of the river, surfing rapids, and dodging obstacles. Paddle boarding itself is a sport that is actually thousands of years old; it appeared sometime in the 16th Century, and there are examples of it being used in a number of countries as an early form of lifeguarding. Now, the paddle board is used for fishing, touring, doing yoga, and yes – riding rivers!
Ryleigh & Jordan learned with KSF!
A few basics...
The calm before the rapids.!
Many local supermarkets and grocery stores offer services that teach locals and customers how to cook, bake, and prepare an assortment of meals. Cooking is not only essential to the livelihood of humans and to our survival, but it is an art, science, and a craft. Cooking is not a task that should be treated as a burden, but it should be treated as an event and should be celebrated. The Canada Food Guide encourages people to eat with others, cook more often, enjoy their food, and to take their time while eating!
Jordan brought Ryleign and the rest of us for a cooking lesson at the Centrale Culinaire!
Making purple gnocchi!
There is always a lot of fun to be had behind the scenes on a TV show… here are just a couple of those moments from this episode – enjoy! 🙂
Darcy just asked Ryleigh what she thinks of his shorts.
So is that a "WRAP?"
We LOVE that Jordan is not afraid to show her goofy side!
Introduce your friends to the show !
RYLEIGH is not your typical 13-year-old – she’s an old soul, and has an enormous collection of vintage vinyl and cassette tapes! A Mohawk from Kahnawake, she’s a determined and hardworking dancer and musician, who is constantly working on her craft. If dancing isn’t her superpower, then seeing the best qualities in all people sure is, as being positive is in her nature! Ryleigh is the clumsiest person she knows and can hardly go a day without falling down, but she always picks herself back up as she’s a firm believer in perseverance!
JORDAN CLARK is a dancer, actor, and professional ginger – self-proclaimed of course. She is known for winning So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 4, and for her role as Gisele on Family Channel’s The Next Step. Jordan’s hometown is Tottenham, Ontario. These days she splits her time between Los Angeles, California and Toronto, developing her career as an actor and choreographer! Jordan was not your typical teenager, and at the age of 17, she was already working on the set of Camp Rock 2 as a dancer.
