Dancers needed for BC Summer Games

Organizers make call out for Dance Crew members for next summer's event

Organizers are seeking dancers for the 2016 BC Summer Games in Abbotsford.

Those with skills on the dance floor now have a chance to showcase their skills at the 2016 BC Summer Games in Abbotsford.

The Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games Ceremonies Team is holding auditions for a Dance Crew, on Nov. 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at W.J. Mouat Secondary School.

This team of dancers will perform at community events leading up to the BC Summer Games, taking place in Abbotsford from July 21 to 24, 2016. These dancers will also play a key role in the Torchlighting Ceremony and both the Opening & Closing Ceremonies.

Organizers are looking for high energy performers, between the ages 16-25, with a strong background in hip-hop and jazz or, who are well versed in other styles of dance, to audition for this team.

Dancers will learn a short piece of choreography which will then be performed for our panel. Dancers will also have the opportunity to free-style or to showcase any other special skill.

Those interested in auditioning for this opportunity must complete a Volunteer Registration form, and bring it, along with one piece of photo identification, your resume and headshots (if applicable) to the audition being held on Nov. 7. Participants under the age of 19 must have the Volunteer Registration form signed by their legal guardian.

For more information on the auditions, contact Lorrisa Arndt at
