Youth dancers seeking opportunities to work with world-class choreographers and doing performances around the Island and beyond may be interested in auditions for Dancestreams Youth Dance Company on Sunday, Sept. 14.

The company is said to offer a professional working environment, the camaraderie of other like-minded and talented dancers.

Dancestreams is the performing group attached to the Vancouver Island Youth Dance Theatre Association, a registered non-profit charity organization.

Each year, a new crop of talented young people age 12-18 from a variety of communities and schools are welcomed into the fold to work together for six hours every Sunday.

Rotating rehearsals between the home towns of participating dancers ensures everyone shares the travel. They have performed annually throughout Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and Lower Mainland and occasionally further afield.

Major tours have included China, Los Angeles, Maritimes, Germany and Belgium. Wherever they have travelled, the group has received rave reviews.

The audition on Sept. 14 will take place at Qualicum Beach School of Dance, from 11 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Those planning to attend are asked to pre-register by calling the Artistic Director Pattie MacKenzie at 250-723-9525 or emailing dancestreams@shaw.ca.
