Dancers have been busily rehearsing and they are now ready for their grand performance.

The recital will be held on Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. in the old Fort St. James Secondary High school gym.

The entire studio of about 65 dancers from primary to competitive will be showcasing their talents.

Ages range from 3-17- years-old.

According to Katelynn Garden, owner of En Pointe, the recital will include solos, trios and group dances.

“There will be a little bit of everything,” Garden said. “There will be a variety including ballet, contemporary and hip hop.”

En Pointe opened its doors on Sept. 30, 2013. Garden is excited for this year’s recital as there are many first time performers.

“It’s great because it’s one of the only outlets for kids to do performances,” Garden says.

The recital is part of the Fort St. James Winterfest this year and is a fundraiser for the dance studio’s Parental Advisory Committee who normally cover the costume costs for recreational students.

“It’s going to be an exciting recital,” Garden said. “The competitive dancers will be performing their dances for the first time. These dances are the ones they will be performing at the Prince George Dance Festival on March 12-18. They are the returning regional champions this year.”

“And for all of the first time performers, we are so excited for them.”
