Some local Armstrong students are putting their talents to a good cause.
Touched by the community’s generosity in their recent competitions, Pleasant Valley Secondary School’s Adrenaline dance team is ready to give back.
The dance team is teaming up with the school’s choirs and jazz band for the production Together – We Can Make a Difference, Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. in the PVSS theatre.
“Come on out for a wonderful evening of song, dance and music performed by the young and young at heart,” said Janet Gilles, Adrenaline dance teacher.
All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Haugen Health Centre in Armstrong and the Tsunami Relief Fund for Japan.
“We wanted to help those in our community as well as abroad,” said Gilles.
The evening will showcase the four competition pieces of the Adrenaline dance team, four to six musical pieces by the Senior Jazz Band (run by Jim Howie) and four to six songs by the two choirs, Tapestry and Encore, run by Len Wood Middle School music teacher Deborah Mehes.
“The end of the evening will feature a group number with all the performers and following the show all audience members are welcome to enjoy goodies and coffee as they mingle and meet the performers,” said Gilles.
There are 240 tickets on sale for a minimum $5 donation and the school is eager to sell out so that each charity can receive a minimum $600.
The tickets are on sale at the office at PVSS and at the Brown Derby restaurant in Armstrong.
