The dancing art is among the oldest, and thanks to those with the talent and desire to move in an artistic way, dance instructors stay busy. An intensive week-long learning session was underway in Castlegar.

There was so much interest last week that the Turning Pointe Dance Studio could not hold it all.

Giving it their best effort at Turning Pointe Studio and also at Castlegar United Church, 76 girls toiled under the watchful eyes of Renee Salsicciolo of Kootenay Danceworks Academy of Rossland, and Charlene Hart, an independent instructor who has performed with So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

There was something for everyone as ballet, jazz and hip hop styles were accommodated.

It was an especially warm and humid week and the effects were evident on the hardworking students.

Kudos to all for the energy and dedication in pursuit of their athletically artistic goals.
