LSS Dance Showcase takes place this Friday

Ladysmith Secondary School dancers will share their talents Friday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. at the school.

The Ladysmith Secondary School (LSS) Dance Showcase is a chance for students to get on stage and share their talents, and it’s coming up this week.

This year’s Dance Showcase takes place this Friday (Jan. 17) at 7 p.m. at the school. Tickets will be on sale Wednesday at lunch at the school and Friday at the door, and they are $6 for students and $8 for adults.

Grade 11 student Mellissa Hatch has been dancing at LSS since Grade 9. She didn’t dance before, and she says she was interested in doing dance at LSS because it seemed like a lot of fun.

“I see a lot of different types of dances,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if you have a dancing background or not. We all get together and have fun.”

Hatch says she gets nervous before performing a showcase, but it’s a lot of fun.

She says audience members can expect “a lot of energy” at this year’s showcase.

“It’s a lot of fun, and they can see a bunch of different talent,” she said.

This year, about 75 dancers are taking part in the Dance Showcase, including students who have been taking dance classes since September, members of the dance team, and improv dancers.

There will be a mix of solo, duo and group dances in a variety of styles, including hip hop, contemporary, tap, modern, musical theatre and jazz.

“Everybody brings something different to the table,” said dance teacher Chelsea Grovum, noting there is a traditional German dance with a German exchange student.
