Sneak Peak Into Precision to benefit two Campbell River charities

This is a chance for dance fans to see CR DanceXtreme’s latest in a variety of genres

CR DanceXtreme’s Showteam will be performing at the Tidemark Theatre Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. to raise funds for two good causes.

The dancers are in rehearsals for Sneak Peek Into Precision, a preview performance of this year’s new competition numbers. Tickets for this year’s Sneak Peek show, which will feature soloists and group numbers, are $25, with all proceeds going towards the Campbell River SPCA and Cameryn’s Cause for Kids – a local non-profit society that provides financial support for families with a child facing a life-threatening illness or injury.

Tickets for ‘Sneak Peek’ go on sale Jan. 22 at the Tidemark box office.

This is a chance for dance fans to see CR DanceXtreme’s latest in a variety of genres, including jazz, ballet, tap, hip hop, lyrical and modern stage. CR DanceXtreme’s Competitive Recreational dancers as well as the Boys’ Competitive Hip Hop program will also be performing.

The ‘Sneak Peek’ will launch the studio’s competitive dance season. CR DanceXtreme’s students will be traveling to Courtenay, the Lower Mainland and Las Vegas this year to compete against hundreds of other dancers at festivals and competitions.

“We are very excited to show off what the students have been working on and to raise funds for two worthwhile causes,” said CR DanceXtreme co-owner and artistic director Shawna Sloan.

Co-owner and artistic director Buddy Mynatt said it’s the first time CR DanceXtreme has done a major fundraiser, and they are hoping for a great turnout.

“If you’d like to see an entertaining evening of dance, and help two great groups who help the community, then this is the perfect night out,” Mynatt said.
