Members of the LVR dance academy are getting ready for next week’s big show.

Nelson high school dancers reparing to cap off year

This coming Friday the L.V. Rogers Secondary School dance program will be performing at the LVR gymnasium in Rite of Movement

This coming Friday the L.V. Rogers Secondary School dance program will be performing at the LVR gymnasium in Rite of Movement.

Students will be performing both teacher and student-choreographed pieces.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are currently for sale by LVR students, and will also be available at the door ($10 for adults, $6 for students, and children six and under are free). Dancers will also be performing at a $2 matinee next Friday at 12:45 p.m.

Some of this year’s highlights include a whirlwind trip to Vancouver in which students participated in a variety of master classes at Harbour Dance Centre, toured SFU’s new contemporary arts facility, met with SFU dance faculty and students as well as attended Love Lies Bleeding, performed by the Alberta Ballet at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Additionally the students recently placed first, third and fourth at Rutland Secondary’s provincial level “Driven” dance competition.

This year’s greatest success has been the move to the new studio. In December a new sprung floor covered by a specialized dance marley was installed in the L.V. Rogers Theatre. This has given the dancers a safe, spacious and well-ventilated studio in which to hone their craft. Students have taken the lead in organizing and executing all of the fundraising for this new floor.

Georama partnered with the students to help them fundraise in both December and April through poinsettia and flower basket sales. The results have been amazing. Students have fundraised almost $2,300 over the course of the year.

The dancers have also been immensely grateful to LVR’s PAC for their donation of $2,000 towards the cost of the floor. Students are hoping for a full house Friday as all ticket sales will help to offset the purchase of the floor.

As the show nears, excitement mounts and the studio is buzzing with enthusiasm and hard work. From ballet to hip-hop, the show is diverse and entertaining.
