Celtic Xmas returns

This weekend will see the return of the annual Celtic Christmas performances.

Between this week’s snow and reported sightings of a certain red-and-white clad gentleman on the North Island, Christmas is fast approaching.

And this weekend will see the return of another festive favourite as the Team Charlton Highland Dancers take to the stage for their annual Celtic Christmas performances.

The popular dance recital will see around 55 local dancers, from 4-year-old beginners to seasoned high-schoolers, perform traditional dances and self-choreographed pieces in a pair of shows this weekend.

The local contingent will be joined once more by champion dancers Mellisa Carnegie and Ross Armour as well as piper Alan Walters.

Shows will take place Saturday, Dec. 6, 6:30 p.m. at PHSS, and Sunday, Dec. 7, at the Gate House Theatre, beginning at 11 a.m. Tickets are available from the Flower Shoppe in Port McNeill and Cafe Guido in Port Hardy.

The shows will crown a successful year for Teresa Charlton’s school of highland dancing. Two dancers from the school won Vancouver Island Premiership titles, one was selected as a B.C. representative and placed sixth in Canada, and two more placed in the Scotdance Canada Open championship and premiership.
