Fresh from hosting the Dance Umbrella Spring Showcase, the Capitol Theatre will be the site of another local dance group as the L.V. Rogers Dance Department and Allegro Theatre present Movement this weekend.

The Dance Department at LVR has been busy over the past school year, performing in showcases and recitals, participating in festivals, and travelling to Vancouver for intensive master classes. 

In November, the Dance Academy students, alongside Allegro Dance Theatre, performed in the Nelson Dance Educator’s Showcase, an initiative of the Nelson District Arts Council.

In early December LVR dancers also travelled to Vancouver for one of the year’s highlights: students attended performances of Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios, and participated in numerous master classes at Harbour Dance Centre.

While in Vancouver, students also toured the renowned Scotiabank Dance Centre. When they returned to LVR, students taught several of the Dance Intramural noon-hour workshops.

The spring season began with a shared performance of  Dance the Night Away, presented by Allegro Dance Theatre. Shortly thereafter  LVR students participated in the Kootenay Festival of the Arts, while Allegro Dancers competed at the Kimberley Dance Works Festival and the Shine Festival in Kelowna.

Movement, will showcase months of hard work and intensive rehearsals.

Movement will be performed at the Capitol Theatre on May 17th and 18th at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available through the Capitol Theatre Box Office. 250 352-6363. Tickets are $14 per adult, $7 per senior/student. Children 6 and under are free.
