The 2011 competitive season is off to a great start for CR DanceXtreme’s Showteam members.

The dancers recently wrapped up two weeks of competition at the North Island Festival of Performing Arts with an impressive list of accomplishments. CR DanceXtreme owners/artistic directors Shawna Sloan and Buddy Mynatt said two CR DanceXtreme dancers have been invited to represent the North Island at the provincials – Ailsa Sirois will be the Stage Dance Level I representative and Krystel Cisnero will be the Stage Dance Level II representative.

Zoe Garlinski-Gonsky has been invited to be a Stage Dance Level I observer, and Carley Cofield is the Stage Dance Level III alternate representative and observer for the North Island.

The North Island Festival of the Arts Honours Performance is scheduled for Friday evening (March 11) and the festival’s Dance Gala takes place Saturday evening (March 12) at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay. CR DanceXtreme’s Ailsa Sirois has been chosen to perform her tap solo ‘My Own Thing’ and the Level One Showteam has been invited to perform their routine ‘Treasures’ from the Junior Ballet event (eight years and under) at the Honours Performance Friday.

Dance fans will also see three CR DanceXtreme’ numbers chosen by adjudicators for performance at Saturday’s Dance Gala – Level Four Showteam’s performance of ‘Americano’ from the Tap Large Group (16 years and under) category and their hip hop performance ‘Kali’ from the Hip Hop Large Group (16 years and under) category, as well as Krystel Cisnero’s lyrical solo ‘Eternal Flame.’

CR DanceXtreme will also perform the mesmerizing Jazz number “Heads Will Roll’ at the Dance Gala.
