Send a Campbell River dancer to London

When Sarah Robinson dances, the audience experiences her passion for life and for dance

Sarah Robinson, along with her dance academy, The Mirror Dance Program in Langley, has been invited to dance on community stages throughout London during the Olympics in July.

Twenty-year-old Robinson grew up in Campbell River. She began Highland dancing at age five and added Irish dance to her repertoire in Grade 9. Then, in Grade 12 she added ballet.

The year after graduation she continued with Highland dance and ballet, as well as taking hip-hop and jazz lessons. During this time she also took ballroom dance lessons.

Robinson organized a ministry-dance team at one of the local churches and led a group of Highland dancers in entertaining at one of the seniors homes in town. She took the Scottish Dance Instructor’s exam this past November, and passed “with distinction”, so is now a Highland dance instructor.

Robinson has spent this past year attending The Mirror Dance Program in Langley, B.C. When Robinson dances, the audience experiences her passion for life and for dance. She has the gift of sharing her heart through her dance.

Marilyn McQueen,  at Brew Unto Others, is holding a fundraiser on May 12 to support Robinson and her trip to London. Join one of two events, 1 p.m. or 4 p.m, at Christian Life Fellowship Hall, 445 Merecroft Road. Brew Unto Others will provide a spectacular array of delicious foods, while Robinson and some of her friends will entertain through dance. Tickets are $15 and are available at Brew Unto Others (the old Pioneer Market) 1691 Island Highway.
