The L.V. Rogers Dance program culminated the school year with their annual The Rite of Movement show Friday, May 25 in the school gymnasium.

The production featured performances and choreographed pieces by both students and instructors.

The performance was the highlight of a spectacular year for the program, which included a whirlwind trip to Vancouver where students participated in a variety of master classes at Harbour Dance Centre.

Students also 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.
