It’s time for Ladysmith Secondary School dance students to show the community how far they’ve come.

LSS presents its Dance Showcase Friday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students at the door. Tickets can be purchased in advance from LSS or from any LSS dancer and cost $8 for adults and $6 for students before Thursday, Jan. 17.

Dance teacher Chelsea Grovum says the audience can expect to see an entertaining dance show with lots of variety.

There will be several types of dances throughout the evening that have been taught in class by Grovum and by visiting artists, including hip hop, tap, contemporary and theatrical numbers.

“Students also work on a major project throughout the semester that involves choreographing their own solo, duet, trio or group dance,” said Grovum. “There were a number of projects selected to be in the showcase this year due to the hard work of many of the dancers. I have been excited to watch my students start to evolve from dancers who can learn and perform choreography into choreographers and true artists.”

The Dance Showcase is an annual event that takes place with the dance students from the first semester dance classes. This year, 60 to 70 students from Grades 8-12 are participating in the show.
