DC dancers going to the Dance World Cup

Two dance groups from the Dawson Creek Dance Company have earned their tickets to the Dance World Cup in Whistler this summer.

The Dawson Creek Dance Company was participating at the 5678 Showtime competition in Lake Louise from April 4 to 7, where the two groups achieved high enough scores to earn their invites to the international competition.

One group — “Win” — was a senior level hip hop group, featuring Abby Rickert, Jessabell Porras, Kendal Parslow, Ryder Dayne Purnell, and Jasmine Devuyst. Carley Cofield is the choreographer.

The other was a tap trio — “Runaway Baby” — featuring Kynleigh Parslow, Kamryn Parslow, and Quinn Rechsteiner, with Lindsay Dufresne as choreographer and teacher. They earned first place in their competition.

The dancers were judged by an international group of adjudicators, who travel around as part of the 5678 Showcase tour, with stops all across Canada and Alaska.

The Dance World Cup sees dancers from all over the world, with over 8,000 dancers from Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Cyprus, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guam, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Turkey, and the USA having taken part in the past.

The girls will be fundraising for the trip to Whistler, as it was an unplanned event. The Dance World Cup goes from June 28 to July 4.
