Steps Dance Company headed south

The Steps Company Dancers and their teachers are once again hard at work, preparing for another exciting season of entertainment.

The Steps Company Dancers and their teachers are once again hard at work, preparing for another exciting season of entertainment on the stage.

This year, they are preparing to be ambassadors, not only for their community of Greater Trail, but for their country as well.

This coming March, under the direction of Rhonda Michallik, in her 24th year directing the Steps Company, the 25 dancers will be heading down south of the border, to perform a 30-minute production number called “OH CANADA.”

They will do a show in Disney’s California Adventure Park , before heading over to Hollywood to take Dance classes at such studios as the International Dance Academy, where they rehearse the show “So You Think You Can Dance,”  as well as The Edge Performance Centre, which is the largest studio in Los Angeles.

For their finale, they will board a Carnival Cruise Ship to Ensanada, Mexico, where they will perform as the ship’s entertainment.

This trip will give the Dancers an opportunity to experience the world of dance outside of their “comfort zone,” both as performers and as students.  They will have the opportunity to work with Dance Instructors whose resume’s boast such names as:  “Americas Best Dance Crew, Shakira, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Keisha, American Music Awards.”

For young dancers wishing to pursue and develop a career in the entertainment industry, the chance to have question-and-answer time with these professionals will be awe-inspiring.

In addition, performing on the cruise ship will give the kids a taste of what that life might be like as a cruiseline entertainer; one possible option after high school.
