Dancing trio to inspire young dance crowd

GIFTED- Dancer Lisa Jantzie showcases her remarkable dancing skill. Next month

Accomplished dancers Kristin, Lisa and Alison Jantzie will be heading to Alberta to show young aspiring dancers that the market for talent can be found right here at home.

From Aug. 14–20 the sisters, originally from the Central Alberta region, hope to inspire dancers ages 11 and up to pursue their dreams in a dance career by providing a weeklong dance training course. The Inspire Dance Summer Intensive will be held at 2811D Bremner Ave.

Classes will be run in jazz, contemporary, ballet, theatre dance and more and are also open to anyone wanting to stop by and see what it is all about.

“There is definitely a little bit of everything all week with a demonstration at the end,” said Kristin.

The three sisters have all taken part in numerous dance activities around the world including performing on Disney Cruise Lines and even going so far as to audition for commercials.

Lisa has performed with the Alberta Ballet and has also performed onboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise lines.

Kristin also explained that the sisters would like to bring some guest teachers in to show students the diversity in dance lifestyles as well as successes that they may look forward to.

There will be five classes a day for the intensive course and Kristin said youth looking to take part can expect to see some ballet as well. “Ballet is an important technique for all dances so we will definitely be involving the students in that.”

Intermediate and advanced classes will both be offered.

“We wanted to give a chance to students who are getting into dance seriously and let them know that you don’t have to move somewhere extreme to start your career.”

Kristin said that a dancing career can be started right here in Alberta and that there are opportunities to audition for travelling shows of all kinds including cruise lines fairly locally.

For the upcoming classes, the age 11 and up range was chosen because of the intensity of the course.

“We wanted to have it a week long and do several hours of dance a day. You can’t go much younger than that and keep the energy up.”

There is space left in the classes and Kristin said they can accommodate up to 20 students while still being able to provide one-on-one attention and a comfortable group atmosphere.
