Dancestreams Youth Dance Company (Vancouver Island Youth Dance Theatre Association) kicks off an all-new season of dance with auditions this Sunday, June 24 in both Qualicum and Campbell River.

Dancestreams assistant director Julia Carr will conduct classes at the Qualicum Beach School of Dance from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and at Urban Dance Connection from 3–4:30 p.m. Serious dancers ages 13 and up are welcome to audition for a place in this renowned company.

Professional choreographers will work with dancers to create new works which will tour throughout the region next spring. Young choreographers will also be able to work with them.
