Dance Kitimat prepares to dazzle audiences again

Don’t miss the showcase this Saturday

Prepared to be enthralled and entertained when Dance Kitimat once again puts on its spectacular competitive showcase.

The Mount Elizabeth Theatre will host the showcase this Saturday, February 29, which serves as a fundraiser for the troupe’s travel costs to attend the three big competitions in the region, Prince George for the spring break, Terrace for the Pacific Northwest Festival in April and the BC Annual Dance Competition in Prince Rupert in May.

Dance Kitimat fundraiser Kara Braithwaite said the troupe is hoping to build on their successes in 2019.

”Our team has become great representatives of Kitimat as we work towards developing further leaders,” said Braithwaite.

Last year in Prince George, Dance Kitimat won three second-places, one third and one first, with three of their duets winning third place. One of their dancers placed first in her category and won Dancer of the Day.

In Terrace, the team had three second-places, two first-place and one duet received the first prize.

In Prince Rupert, the team won third place in solo and second place in a group dance.

“This year our team will be competing in Prince George, Terrace and the Prince Rupert competitions. We have 27 dancers with 22 solos, nine duos and 13 group performances going to the Prince George and Terrace competitions. There will be 10 dancers heading to Prince Rupert this year,” said Braithwaite.

Entry to the showcase is by donation only, well worth the entertainment value.
