Instead of spending their holidays and weekends relaxing during the summer, the trio of dancers have been training hard for the rare and exciting opportunity of representing Team Canada on the world stage.

They’ll join Team Canada Dance, one of two Canadian groups that will represent the country at the championships in December. The two groups will enter the World Modern and Contemporary Championships and the World Ballet and Jazz Championships.
