Dance academy travels to Europe

Kelowna’s Dance City Academy tour group is fundraising for a final time, Saturday, June 24

One West Kelowna dance academy is fundraising for a trip of a lifetime.

The Dance City Academy tour group is comprised of 43 hard-working dancers ages nine to 17 who have been working hard for the past two-years to travel to Europe by performing in the community and fundraising.

On June 28, they depart Kelowna and will dance and take classes in London, Prague and Berlin.

The highlight of their European tour will be their participation in The New Prague Dance Festival.

The festival runs yearly with participants from around the world all coming together to share in their love of dance. This is the first time a team from Canada has attended and the West Kelowna contingent of dancers is excited to represent Canada and West Kelowna.

The tour group is doing one last performance and fundraiser on Saturday, June 24 at Save On Foods in West Kelowna.

The performance is at 3 p.m. with a hot dog sale running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
