The Dance Academy of Prince Rupert held its annual Summer World of Dance workshop with classes running from August 6 until August 10.

The Dance Academy of Prince Rupert held its annual Summer World of Dance workshop last week, with classes running from August 6 until August 10.

This year there were around seventy students who participated in a number of classes including ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip-hop, musical theatre, drama, adult yoga and dance all stylez.

There were three dance instructors this year, including Prince Rupert’s own Tara Crouse and Amber Mackereth, who were both previously students at the Dance Academy, and Chiliwack-based dance teacher Deanna Limbert.

Teresa Macereth, who is the founder of the Dance Academy, says that the summer workshop is important because it accelerates dancers technique.

Registration for the coming dance season will be taking place on August 28 and 29, as well as September 4 and 5. For further information on registration, contact the studio at 250-624-3457 or e-mail
