The Rite of Movement is coming to L.V. Rogers High School.

The show, a production of the LVR dance program, is set for the LVR Hangar, Friday (May 25) at 7 p.m.

Students will be performing both  teacher and student-choreographed pieces.

Tickets are currently for sale by LVR students, and will also be available at the door: $10 for adults, $6 for students, and children 6 and under are free.

Dancers will also be performing at a $2 matinee on Friday May 25th at 12:45 p.m.

The season has seen plenty of highlights for the students.

Some highlights included a whirlwind trip to Vancouver in which students participated in a variety of master classes at Harbour Dance Centre, toured SFU’s new contemporary arts facility, met with SFU dance faculty and students as well as attended, “Love Lies Bleeding” performed by the Alberta Ballet at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Additionally the students recently placed first, third and fourth at Rutland Secondary’s provincial level “Driven” dance competition.

This year’s greatest success has been the move to the new studio. In December a new sprung floor covered by a specialized dance marley was installed in the LVR Rogers Theatre.

This has given the dancers a safe, spacious and well-ventilated studio in which to hone their craft.

Students have taken the lead in organizing and executing all of the fundraising for this new floor.

Georama partnered with the students to help them fundraise in both December and April through poinsettia and flower basket sales.

The results have been amazing! Students have fundraised almost $2300 over the course of the year.

The dancers have also been immensely grateful to LVR’s PAC for their donation of two thousand dollars towards the cost of the floor.
