Dance school 10 years strong

DreaMotion Dance celebrates its 10th anniversary with a recital at Creekside Theatre Saturday March 3 at 6 p.m.

It is a milestone year for DreaMotion Dance.  Their 10th anniversary recital will be held at the Creekside Theatre Saturday March 3 at 6 p.m.

Petrina Koltun operates DreaMortion out of the Winfield Memorial Hall. Approximately 100 children of all ages plus some adults attend classes and almost all of the students will be at the recital.

The recital will have children as young as two up on stage, with many older children showing off their jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical and break dance moves. “I have 30 little boys, ages four to 12, all in different classes who break dance,” says Koltun.

There is a new program called rock band at DreaMotion and five rock bands with members aged four to 13 will take to the boards to show off their stuff at the recital.  DreaMotion teamed up with the Kelowna Rock School to have classes, and it has been huge success.

DreaMotion is a bustling school says Koltun. “I have both rooms running at the Memorial Hall. We love the Memorial Hall, it has the old original hardwood which is the best for teaching dance.”

This recital is also in support of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. “We’re supporting a little girl, Elise Boisvert, who is very ill in our community, with all dancers singing with her, the song, I Have a Dream,” Koltun says.  “When the kids all sing we want to bring awareness to the children to have compassion for children and families who are going through tough times and need love and support.”

The recital usually comes close to selling out each year.  Koltun says the event always proves to be popular. “I have been reserving tickets for people, and it is very good to call ahead. I am a full-time realtor, but I run the dance school because I love dance and I love the music, and I want to pass that on to the community and my own children.”

Tickets can be reserved by contacting Koltun at 250-766-1000.
