Last week, the 23rd annual Chance to Dance summer intensive dance workshop took place at the Spectrum City Dance Studio.



The 23rd annual Chance to Dance summer intensive dance workshop took place at the Spectrum City Dance Studio, starting last Tuesday, and wrapping up on Sunday.

Over fifty experienced dancers from all disciplines participated in the workshop, in three different age categories; with dancers being as young as eight, and as mature as 20.

Classes ran all throughout the day, and were instructed by three out of town teachers. Teachers included Vancouver-based Jennifer White, who was teaching ballet, Texas-based Tasha Lawson who was teaching tap and contemporary dance, and Prince Rupert raised Giselle Liu who now lives in Hong Kong, who was teaching jazz.

Although it was mainly dancers from Prince Rupert who took part in the workshop, dancers from Terrace, Prince George, Vancouver and even as far away as Saskatoon also participated.
