THE ARTISTIC TEAM of Jessica Carter and Livea Gill invites all experienced dancers to come out and audition for the 2010/2011 True Colours Youth Company of Performing Arts this Saturday.

The True Colours Youth Company of Performing Arts is embarking on another exciting season of dance excellence.

Are you a dancer in our area who wants to take that extra leap, stretch and challenge yourself, learn and perform more, work with innovative and renowned choreographers, make new friends all in a welcoming environment.

Then come and audition for Comox Valley’s only youth dance company True Colours.

True Colours is supported by Making Opportunities Matter Society (MOMS), a non-profit society that encourages company members to strive for excellence in themselves and within their peer group. It also provides the opportunity to work with dance professionals involved in the industry today.

The goal is to expose our members to all aspects of the performing arts which will ultimately enhance their growth and knowledge for future endeavors. The company strives to provide an opportunity and place for students, who are already training, to focus in on their performance skills and contribute to upcoming productions.

Members are required to be 12 to 18 years old, trained in dance for at least five years and be training a minimum of five hours of dance per week in a variety of classes. The True Colours director reserves the right to make exceptions, and encourages dancers to bring their own unique style and presence to the group and maintain their individuality.

The company meets Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and work on choreography set by a professional experienced in one of the many genres of dance.

Last year’s show, While You Sleep, included contemporary, jazz, body percussion, hip hop, contemporary ballet, musical theatre and improv. This performance took the audience on a compelling voyage through the light and dark side of dreams.

True Colours artistic director Livea Gill is thrilled to announce Elements — a Spiritual Dance Awakening as the title of the sixth annual performance. Dancers will explore movement through five mystical elements, Earth, Fire, Air, Water and Aether.

The show is set for May 19, 2012 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Gill encourages all those interested to come out and audition in a relaxed and unique atmosphere Saturday September 24th at noon at Gemini Dance Studios (3-2364 Rosewall Cres. in Courtenay).
