On Thursday, May 23 at 7 p.m., the L.V. Rogers dance department will perform at the Capitol Theatre. The show will feature choreography by Jen MacMillan, Joshua Beamish and LVR students. Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre box office (250-352-6363). Tickets will also be available at the door: $11 for adults, $6 for students/senior citizens, and children 6 and under are free.

This year’s highlights were numerous.  Students travelled to Vancouver where they participated in a variety of master classes at Harbour Dance Centre, toured Simon Fraser University’s new contemporary arts facility, and attended Cirque de Soleil’s newest show Amaluna.

Students also had the opportunity to work with Joshua Beamish, artistic director of MOVE: the company thanks to a generous grant from Artstarts. Following Joshua Beamish’s residency, students partook in a master class with Les Ballet Jazz de Montreal.

Finally the dance company travelled to Kelowna to attend the INNOV8 dance competition at Mount Boucherie Secondary School. They earned first and second place.

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.
