Parkland Dance Festival is welcoming hundreds of dancers from local and provincial dance studios to showcase their performances during the adjudicated competition at the Anne Portnuff Theatre, April 22, 23 and 24, 2022.
Over $9,500 in awards and scholarships will be awarded to the youth performers throughout the weekend and this has been made possible by the generous out pouring of support the festival has received from Yorkton businesses. Adjudicators, Jen Morris and Naomi Stikeman, have vast experience as dancers and educators. Naomi is currently the Artistic Producer for Ballet BC in Vancouver and Jen Morris has over 20 years of dance education and has had the honour of teaching and mentoring dancers from across Ontario, British Columbia and South East Asia.
This year marks 15 years for Parkland Dance Festival, which is organized by a board of volunteer dance parents that recognized the great importance of competition opportunities in the development and growth of young performing artists. Annually the committee dedicates months of planning to provide a quality dance experience right here at home.
The festival is open to all wishing to enjoy on stage performances in all genres of dance including ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, acro and hip hop. Daily and weekend passes will be available at the door, starting at 10 a.m. Friday through Sunday.
