Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future were brought to life by the dancers from En Pointe Dance Studio in Fort St. James.

The performance, held at the FSJSS gymnasium on Dec. 18 and 19, was full of colour, costumes and creativity. The dancers, of various ages, took to the stage as some of their favorite Muppet characters in a dancing rendition of The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Katelynn Garden, artistic director and owner of En Pointe Studio was thrilled with what the dancers had achieved. “It’s been a lot of work since September when rehearsals began.”

Both recreational and competitive dancers took part in a memorable performance that helped celebrate the magic and spirit of the holiday season.
