Submitted – Special to Sylvan Lake News

Dancers from Sylvan Studio have started fundraising so that approximately 50 of them can learn and dance at Disney World.

The age range of the dancers is from age seven to 17. They are all very dedicated and passionate about their chosen sport. They are all a team and help each other to learn and to grow as dancers. All of these dancers are so excited at the new opportunity that is being presented to them.

They are going to dance in Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park to “Dancing in The Street” alongside many other dancers from other parts of Canada, Mexico and the United States. These dancers will also be given classes at Disney Dance School and receive instruction and learning time with some of the amazing chorographers and dancers within the Disney cast.

The dancers will be treated as Disney cast members for the time they are at Disney World. It is such an amazing experience for these children. Who knows, some day when you travel to Disney World Florida you might even see a local Sylvan Laker within the dancing cast, doing what they love.

We are looking for support in several aspects of this Disney World – Dance The World tour. We are hosting a Christmas Bazaar & Craft Show with a silent auction on Nov. 17 at Sylvan Studio (31 Cuendet Industrial Way). The dancers, and their families, are helping with the set up and cleaning. Local businesses interested in setting up a table to sell their wares may contact Tami Lindstrand at 403-887-6621 for more information.

The dancers are also currently selling poinsettias for Christmas. They are to be delivered the beginning of December to Sylvan Studio. Please consider buying your Christmas poinsettias from some of our dancers this season.

We are hoping many local businesses would consider helping provide us with a silent auction item to help the dancers achieve their goal of dancing on the streets of Disney.

The dancers and their families participated in a bottle drive in October, it was a fun night had by all! Thank you to all who supported the dancers with your bottle donations.

Each child needs to raise approximately $1,800 in order to go. This will cover flights, hotel, costumes. They will be covering their food and any incidental purchases. These children, and their families, are very excited and ready to work very hard to achieve their goal.

This is the first time these local dancers have had the opportunity to travel internationally to show the world what wonderful kids they are, both on and off the stage.

Sylvan Studio has been operating in Sylvan Lake for over 25 years. They promise to be great ambassadors of their town, province and country, and to show the world that Sylvan Lake, Alberta has some amazing children and families.
