True Colours performing at Sid

The Comox Valley's only pre-professional youth dance company, True Colours, is preparing for its fifth annual gala performance on May 21 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

The Comox Valley’s only pre-professional youth dance company, True Colours, is preparing for its fifth annual gala performance on May 21 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Artistic Director Livea Gill, along with several other choreographers, have guided the 22 young company members on their dance adventure this season and are excited to showcase their talents.

This year’s company brings together dancers representing five different dance schools from the North Island. Since October 2010, the company has been working together on Saturdays for four hours preparing for the new show.

This year`s show, While You Sleep, is a journey through dreams — a succession of images, sounds and emotions that the mind experiences during slumber.

Dreams often have a deeper meaning and this year`s theme will take the audience on a compelling voyage through the light and dark side of the subconscious using contemporary, ballet, musical theatre and other exciting dance styles.

Tickets are available online at or by phone at 250-338-2430.
