Deep Cove dancers called back to the stage

North Saanich students perform in the Greater Victoria Festival of the Performing Arts.

Dancers with Deep Cove Elementary School were invited back to this week’s Highlight event out of the recent Greater Victoria Festival of the Performing Arts.

Chosen by a Festival adjudicator following their initial performances April 29, members of Deep Cove’s Dance Club for students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 were called back to be on stage at the University of Victoria on Thursday, May 7 (after the News Review’s press deadline). They will perform their dance, called Timber.

Nicole Irwin, a teacher at the school and who helps run the Dance Club alongside parent volunteer Anette Martens, says the Grade 1-2 class (led by teacher Veronica Laeuner) was also invited to the Highlight performance, to showcase their number, Shell Shocked, from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

“They had a wonderful time,” Irwin said of the students’ performances during the Festival, adding this is the third straight year Deep Cove’s dancers have been invited back.

Irwin said there are 49 students in the Deep Cove Dance Club.
