For the first time ever the sounds of tap dancing filled the air of the Howard Phillips Community Hall on Friday.
12 kids from Haida Gwaii, ranging in ages from 8-11, took part in the performance. It came as the culmination of a week long program led by the Driftwood Dance Academy, who were up visiting from North Vancouver for the third year in a row.
Under the instruction of dance teacher Laura Killeen, the kids learned tap, lyrical dance and musical theatre skills, finishing off the week with a tap performance at Howard’s Hall.
The first year of Driftwood’s visit focused on ballet, while last year featured a Mary Poppins musical.
