The 2016 Avon Maitland Dance Showcase was held at Stratford Northwestern Secondary School and attracted over 450 students from 13 different schools.
The showcase, which has been held annually for over 20 years, invites students to perform a pre-rehearsed dance in front of an audience made up of friends and family.
The troupes chose a variety of music to perform to, such as hip hop, country, classic movie themes, and many more. Some schools also incorporated costumes and props to give their performance that little extra something.
The students bring their A-game, but this is no competition. While a group is performing, a contagious eruption of cheers and applause echoes throughout the gymnasium.
This is a great evening that promotes healthy activity, inclusivity, and the arts.
