The Turning Pointe performance is April 19.

Dancing company holding showcase

52 Talented dancers this Saturday April 19 at the Brilliant Cultural Centre.

The Turning Pointe Dance Company will be showcasing all of its 52 dancers this Saturday April 19 at the Brilliant Cultural Centre.

These talented dancers ranging in age from 8-16 have been honing their skills all year long under Artistic Director and teachers Julie Teindl and Jessika Dobie.

The girls began choreography in August and September.

Last year they were fortunate to have Charlene Hart, from “So you think you can dance Canada” along with other guest teachers help set choreography for the various solo, duo, and group numbers.

The dancers take multiple classes each week in ballet, jazz, turn and jump, stretch and strength, Arco (Cirque de Solei style) and for the ladies  twelve and older, lyrical dance.

In spring the dance company attends three festivals in Castlegar with, “Just Dance”, the Okanagan with “Shine” and in Cranbrook with the “Kimberly Danceworks.”

So the Dance Showcase this Saturday will show the spring repertoire that the dancers have worked so hard on. “ Kathleen Zubick the Chair of the dance company told the Castlegar News that, “The Turning Pointe team consistently puts up great scores, wins lots of awards and we work hard to create a group that is a team first and supports each other.”

Saturday the dancing starts at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.
