United Dance gets sets to Hallelujah

Show at DTSS gym this Friday, May 25th at 7 p.m.

United Dance has been hard at work on their steps all year, and are gearing up for the season-ending show next weekend.

The Invermere-based dance studio’s show Hallelujah will incorporate a variety of styles, including ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary acro dance, hip hop, and tap, and promises to be a treat for any dance lover.

“We are proud of the growth of our students and excited to show the community what we’ve been working on,” said co-owner Melyssa Hecher.

“It’s going to be our best show yet. We have a bigger stage and stronger dancers than ever before,” added fellow co-owner Meesh Jensen.

This year will mark the third edition of the annual show.

United Dance has benefitted tremendously from its new studio space in Athalmer, which the group acquired last June and renovated throughout last summer.

“The new space has been fantastic. It’s huge. We can have a lot more dancers and we actually have a sprung floor, so dancers can jump and not hurt themselves,” said Ms. Hecher.

“It (the new studio) has been a really positive development. The extra space has really let kids fall in love with dance. Their improvement has been through the roof,” said Ms. Jensen.

Ms. Hecher said the whole season has been quite successful for the group, with United Dance having travelled to and competed in three separate competitions in Alberta throughout this spring.

The two-hour show will be at the David Thompson Secondary School gym on Friday, May 25th at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at Inside Edge. Drinks and snacks are available at intermission.
