A local dance company is making headlines. Actually, Still Dancing is In the News. Approximately 125 dancers, aged three and up, will perform their annual recital this weekend in Squamish.
In the News has been cleverly choreographed by Debbie Vidas and Sandi Wadden. Three- and four-year-olds are dressed in original costumes, representing the gardening and classified sections of a newspaper. Senior students represent reporters capturing news with travels to Spain. Tap, jazz and ballet will tell their stories.
Known as the Garibaldi School of Dance for 24 years, Still Dancing has deep roots in both the Whistler and Squamish communities. This event brings together nearly 1,000 people who are involved in performing, organizing and enjoying the show.
Still Dancing, with sponsorship from the Rotary Club, also gives back to the community, donating all net proceeds to the local hot breakfast program.
Curtain is June 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Brennan Park Recreation Centre. Tickets are $9 for adults, $5 for children, students and seniors and are available at Garibaldi Graphics, Katmandu, Nesters Pharmacy, Pemberton Valley Supermarket, Club Flex, Highland Video or at the door.
