Gold Pan City Dance hosted a year end Dance Gala, May 30 – 31 at the Chuck Mobley Theatre.

Young dancers as well as more experienced took to the stage, wearing colourful and beautiful costumes as they danced the night away showing the progress of years of hard work.

Many family and friends came out to the support these talented young dancers that by the time all the audience trickled in and the curtain rose there was standing row only.

Performances ranged from traditional ballet to more contemporary numbers and nearly everything in between, with group and solo dances captivating the audience.

There was a lot for the Gold Pan City dancers to celebrate as they rang in another successful year. Several of the dancers have qualified for provincial competitions, these dancers are Tea Mamic, Sarah Armstrong, Brianna Godseo, Ali Cervienka and Jorja Samons.

As with most endings it is always bittersweet. Graduating dancers Hannah Day and Callena Shaver have been students of Gold Pan City Dance since they were elementary student.

Instructors and fellow dancers said farewell to these two wonderful and talented dancers, wishing them luck in all their future endeavours.

Registration for the new season starts Aug. 25 and instructors are already making exciting plans for the fall.
