Several of Innovative Dance Arts’ students

Outstanding performances at recent festivals for Innovative dancers

Two students selected to go onto Performing Arts BC provincial festival in Powell River

Innovative Dance Arts studio has reason to be proud.

Several of the school’s dancers received accolades at two recent regional dance festivals.

These dancers took part in the North Island Festival of Performing Arts (NIFPA) in Courtenay at the end of February and the Upper Island Musical Festival (UIMF), which just finished at the beginning of this month in Nanaimo.

At NIFPA, dancer Sophie Carl was selected as intermediate modern alternate for the upcoming Performing Arts B.C. provincial festival in Powell River May 26-30.

Similarly, Fionnuala Irving was selected at UIMF as Intermediate Modern Rep for the Performing Arts BC provincial festival.

Irving also received a bursary for outstanding performance at UIMF, as did Sophie Carl, Mackenna Jardine, Ali Jenkins, Clara Keefer and Madison Ranger.

Finally, one of the studio’s teachers, Shilo Brocklebank, was honoured by receiving the most entertaining award for her piece Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’.
