The Lake Country School of Dance annual extravaganza is coming up, May 24 through May 26 at the Creekside Theatre.

More than 280 students of all ages will take to the boards to show off their skills in jazz, hip hop, modern, acro, lyrical and other dance styles.

The school is fresh off a successful competition season and the action on the stage promises to be exciting and entertaining.

“We do have quite a few people come out from the community every year to support us, which is awesome,” said Shani Wendell, owner of Lake Country School of Dance.

Wendell founded the school in 2000 and now draws students from both Vernon and Kelowna.

The popularity of the annual show is now so high there are four separate times, Thursday, May 24 at 7 p.m., Friday, May 25 at 7 p.m. and two shows on Saturday, May 26, a matinee at 1:30 p.m. and a 7 p.m. show.

Expect capacity crowds as every year the show sells out. You can get tickets through the school by calling 250-766-4502.
