From tribal fusion to street style, Saturday’s annual Get Bent Dance and Yoga Spring Showcase had a little something for everyone.
If that wasn’t enough, at the end of Sunday’s event at the Cleland Theatre some of the performers’ dads got on stage to shake what they got to a standing ovation from the crowd.
And throw in some Spanish fusion with the guitar expertise of Penticton’s William Leggott, rounded out an entertaining afternoon.
“So many of our shows are outdoors, the festivals the markets, I mean that’s great, but it’s something different when you’re on a really big stage with big bright lights, it makes it feel much more special for the dancers,” said Get Bent co-owner Wendy Goudie, who along with husband John, have turned the studio into the country’s largest belly dance school. “It’s really fun and one of the best things was just seeing how they all get together back stage and the older kids help the younger kids, honestly it was more exciting than what’s happening on stage itself.”
Get Bent’s next event is Friday at 7 pm. for Spanish Fusion with Leggott and the Get Bent dancers at The Nest and Nectar in the Cannery Trade Centre.
