What fabulous, amazing talented young people in Penticton and the South Okanagan.
I ushered the Gotta Dance show at the Cleland Theatre on Friday, Feb. 24 and I was blown away by the talent displayed by all the dancers.
A variety of dance styles was displayed; classical ballet, modern ballet, tap, musical and comedic. Most dancers performed their dances as solo artists, not an easy feat for anybody. However, the confidence, enthusiasm, fun and stage presence displayed outshone any sign of nerves. The music used for each dance was interesting, costumes were simple, and the announcements were clearly spoken.
It was a near capacity audience who clearly appreciated the many hours of practice the dancers and their teachers had invested in the event. Congratulations to everybody involved with this show and next time you see a poster advertising such an event at the Cleland Theatre, be sure to get a ticket, you won’t be disappointed.
