Wine matched with choreography

Vancouver-Former Parksville student part of unique event

A professional dancer who spent a year training at the Parksville Ballet School is participating in the BLOOM choreographic residency with renowned Canadian choreographer Jennifer Mascall.

An event will take place May 14, 21 and 28 in Vancouver featuring the dancer, Kelly McInnes, who now lives in Vancouver. The event is called BLOOM: Experience dance through the wine’s eye and the comic’s tongue, and it combines choreography with wine and a stand-up comedy.

At the event a sommelier selects wine for each work based on adjectives the seven choreographers used to describe their dances.  Spectators then sip the wine while viewing a five minute excerpt of the dance. Following that a stand-up comic interprets the dance.

The event takes place at Mascall Dance Studio at 1130 Jarvis St. in Vancouver. Tickets are $10 which includes a glass of wine. The show runs from 5:15 to 6:15. For more information on the company visit www.mascalldance.ca.
