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.

Carr started her dance training at Arts Umbrella in Vancouver.  She holds a Master of Arts in Performance Dance from the University of Limerick, Ireland as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from Acadia University.

Carr currently tours and performs with Raven Dance Company and Aerioso Dance Company in Vancouver.

This season Dancestreams will focus on “Creative Spirit”—the connections between art, poetry, music, and dance, encouraging dancers to explore movement from many different angles and perceptions.

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.

Audition classes are $15 each. To pre-register, please e-mail: or call Barb Dow at 250-390-0019. DVD audition tapes will also be accepted until July 8. Please go online to for details.
