True Colours Youth Company of Performing Arts present their annual dance performance ‘L’ – Dances inspired by Love,  Dec. 5-6 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

True Colours, now in its ninth year, consists of a junior and senior company from the Comox Valley, Campbell River and Port Alberni.

“This upcoming performance showcases the amazing talents of (our) young dancers and guest performers and choreographers, and is not to be missed,” says True Colours artistic director Michelle Henly.

This season showcases work set by guest choreographers from around British Columbia and pieces are based on their interpretation of love.

Many are choreographed and taught in just one day, a testament to the dedication and hard work of these young dancers. The show, simply titled ‘L’, explores the concept of what love inspires in us, from what it is to the many emotions it leaves us with.

“The theme of this show will resonate with and entertain all ages,” said assistant director Jessie Gervais.

True Colours is excited and proud to share the stage for both shows with dancers from Ballet Victoria, Principal dancer Andrea Robin Bayne and our own Jessie Gervais.

There will be two performances this year: Friday,  Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. (all tickets $20) and Saturday, Dec. 6 at 2 p.m. (matinee special – 12 years and under $10).

Tickets are on sale now at the Sid Williams box office 250-338-2430 or online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com.
