Dancestreams to Perform in Port Hardy

A youth dance company brings it's repertoire to Port Hardy this spring

Dancestreams Youth Dance Company, a pre-professional youth repertory company for Vancouver Island, was formed 30 years ago to provide enriched training and performance opportunities for the Island’s most talented teen dancers.

Selected by annual audition, the dancers from a variety of communities and schools, come together for six hours every Sunday from September to May for the opportunities to work with leading professional choreographers and guest teachers.

Dancestreams has been honoured to work with such luminaries as Wen-Wei Wang, Joe Laughlin, Serge Bennathan, Judith Marcuse and many more.

Its graduates have gone on to train and work at internationally renowned institutions and there is scarcely a dance school on Vancouver Island without at least one Dancestreams alumnus on faculty.

Port McNeill’s Portside Academy director Alana Collins was herself a member of Dancestreams in the early 1990s and Dancestreams is thrilled that her dancers will join the Company in a show at the Port Hardy Civic Centre on Saturday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Dancestreams will present original contemporary works by California choreographer Benita Bike, Lisa Gelley Martin (605 Collective), Julia Carr (Body Narratives), Alysa Pires (Toronto) and Michelle Olson (Raven Spirit Dance Company).  This is a program to please all ages!

Tickets are available at Cafe Guido, East of Java, Portside Academy and at the door.  $10 adults/ $8 Srs & students in advance.

All tickets at the door $10.  More info:  www.dancestreams.ca
