Armstrong’s PVSS dance troupe wins accolades for routines in Mission and Kelowna

Armstrong’s Adrenalince Dance Team keeps pumping out the accolades.

The popular troupe from Pleasant Valley Secondary School took two jazz and hip-hop dance routines to the Shine Dance Festival in Mission.

Their hip hop received gold in their category, and the team placed fourth overall for extra large groups from the entire session of the day.

Adrenaline’s jazz routine received platinum in their category, and most outstanding group from the entire session.

Teacher sponsor Delaina Larson, who is filling in for Janet Gillis, won a star choreography award for the routine, and out of the whole five-day competition PVSS won first place overall out of all the extra large groups that competed at their level.

“They also received the Shine Spirit award for being rockin’ role models to all the other competitors,” said Larson.

Adrenaline and Larson’s Grade 9 dance class took 13 dance routines to the recent Okanagan Dance Showcase Festival in Kelowna/Lake Country.

Teams won six gold medals, seven platinum and the Grade 9 class earned one of the three overall final awards given out at the end of the event.

“They received most entertaining performance, which had never been given out to a junior group before, only to the senior dance teams,” said Larson. “So this was a huge honour for them and for me.”

North Okanagan residents can see Adrenaline in action on their home turf.

The team presents its 2017 show, Clash of the Decades, running June 14-to-16 at 7 p.m. in the PVSS Theatre. The night will showcase all of the Adrenaline numbers, plus all of the Grade 9-to-12 dance class routines. Tickets are $10 each and available at the school.
