Patrick Ryley

EZ Rock radio announcer Patrick Ryley always seems to be where the action is in the Shuswap. When he’s not on the airwaves, he’s out and about with his radio work, his DJ business or his charitable work, most notably performing as Hank Williams. And somehow he finds the time to do some home renovations, cooking and landscaping. Helping hospice is another way Patrick hopes to show support for this community. Patrick and his partner Cristian love living in Salmon Arm, saying it’s a very caring place to be.

Instructor Simone Goerner

Simone has been dancing since she was four years old and has been an instructor for 18 years. Simone has performed her whole life from Germany to the Shuswap. She loves all styles of dancing, but particularly loves hip hop because it is such a high-energy dance. And she needs all that energy because, in addition to teaching, Simone is a mother to two young boys while at the same time being a property manager in Salmon Arm and running a hobby farm and Bed & Breakfast operation.
