Tinkler season ends with a Dance Explosion

The Laurie Tinkler School of Dance presents their 33rd annual recital - Dance Explosion 2016.

It has been said that there are many shortcuts to happiness – and dance is one of them. If happiness is what you seek, you will find it exploding on the stage of the Sid Williams Theatre Thursday, June 2 and Friday June 3 as the Laurie Tinkler School of Dance presents their 33rd annual recital  – Dance Explosion 2016.

The annual recital is the best opportunity to see the full spectrum of dance styles studied by  students at the Laurie TInkler School of Dance.

Throughout the year, dancers from age three through adult have been learning new skills in a variety of dance forms. At Dance Explosion, the dancers have their opportunity to bring it all together and present the experience gained throughout the year. Be prepared to experience the beauty of classical ballet, the excitement of  jazz, the rhythm of tap, the precision of hip hop, the reflective moods of lyrical, the inspiration of contemporary, the haunting energy of Irish and the power of Highland. While some of the choreographies carry messages of strength, pure fun arises from others. Rumour has it that there might even be a visit from a galaxy far, far away. With this much variety, Dance Explosion 2016 is sure to be a fun performance for everybody.

This year’s show has been choreographed primarily by the talented faculty: Laurie Tinkler, Natasha Kozak, Rachel Bood and Megan Hill. Many of the costumes for Dance Explosion 2016 were created locally to accompany the creative choreography of the faculty.

Dance Explosion 2016 is approximately three  hours in length including intermission. The show begins at 7 p.m. both nights. Tickets  are now on sale at the Sid Williams box office at the cost of adults $21, students $19 and children $12.
