Dancers from tiny tots to adults performed on May 13 at the Slave Lake Legacy Centre. This was Dancin’ Kids Slave Lake’s year-end performance. The show had two sessions – the little guys and performance dancers at 1 p.m. and competitive dancers at 4 p.m. In total, there were 33 performances.

Dancers performed ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, and tap. They performed in groups, solos, and duets.

Dancin’ Kids has roughly 150 students. The studio offers ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, silks, adult classes, and preschool classes. This season, dancers competed at Showcase in Sherwood Park, Plie Prep in Leduc, and Evergreen in Sherwood Park.
