Melissa Wallace, the owner and artistic director of the Dance Studio of Swift Current was proud to show off her dancers’ talent. 

“The weekend went really well, it was little bit smoother this year being our second year at the Innovation Plex,” stated Wallace. “We added some extra wings and drapery to the sides of the stage to create more of a theater type atmosphere. We had fantastic sound and lighting.” 

The sound was provided by Mark Ruel and lighting was provided by Nancy Bridal, who are big supporters of the studio according to Wallace. One former student of the studio who had moved to Alberta two years ago returned and performed a special solo choreographed by Wallace for her grade 12 year. 

“I really feel that all of the dancers did a fantastic job,” expressed Wallace, “They worked very hard, they performed so well, and things just ran so smoothly. As usual, the littlest dancers that we have from ages two to five tend to steal the show because they're so adorable.”

This marked the end of dance season for the studio, but Wallace stated that parents and dancers alike are getting excited for next year.
