Sunday, June 2 marks the day for the annual MacKenzie School of Dance Ceilidh 2013.
Ceilidh is a Scottish word for party, and that’s the atmosphere present at the year-end recital as the season’s hard work culminates in an exciting showing of dance in a variety of styles. This year’s theme “Off the Wall, in living colour” pulls together an eclectic group of dances including ballet, highland, celtic and contemporary- with a twist.
This tight-knit group of dancers age 3 to 17 have been delighted to work on their dances and are happily anticipating this performance, their first in the new ADSS auditorium.
Teacher Pattie MacKenzie is also excited by the prospect of welcoming home professional lighting designer Kelly Maloney to work his magic on stage. Well known in the Vancouver stage and film community, Kelly has been wowing Port Alberni audiences since his youth.
Tickets for Ceilidh ’13 are available at Somass Drugs, Echo Centre, Rollin Art Centre & at the door. Adults $12, Students $8, Kids 5 & under FREE. Show time is 2:00 pm. For more information, call 250-723-9525 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
