The art of dance
For the past month, thousands of dancers have been tapping, pirouetting, popping and gliding across the Surrey Arts Centre stage.
The 45th-annual Surrey Festival of Dance wrapped up Thursday, with the last of the junior tap and stage competitors performing for the adjudicators. Every day over the past several weeks, more than 10,000 dancers of all ages – competing in ballet, lyrical, modern, song and dance, jazz and hip hop – have displayed their skills at the festival, one of the largest amateur dance competitions in North America.
Winners from the Surrey festival, as well as the top groups at other B.C. festivals, will now be featured at the No Borders Dance Challenge, May 7 at 9 a.m. at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave.
An honour awards ceremony takes place the same day and place at 7:30 p.m. For more information, phone 604-583-3320.
