Award winning dancers from Precision Cheer and Dance are ready to turn heads, as they prepare for the upcoming competitive dance season. They will be performing at St. John’s United Church in Kemptville on Friday, March 1, between 7‑8 pm to help raise funds for our local Jumpstart program. Admission is free and voluntary donations will be gladly accepted to the Jumpstart program.
The Jumpstart program funds over 72 local programs for families that are not able to afford the cost of registration and required equipment. All money raised locally stays local to help our families. The Jumpstart program is run by Canadian Tire Foundation, and helps families in need to pay the cost of registration, equipment, and other things their children may require to enjoy sports, arts and many other activities. If you are a family in need, please contact Claire Larabie at [email protected].
The dancers will be entertaining the community by debuting what they will showcase at upcoming competitions they will be attending in Ottawa, Gatineau and Kingston in the lyrical, jazz, ballet, acro and mixed dance categories. Not only are they amazingly talented dancers, they also like to bake, so there will be a bake table of goodies for sale, also by voluntary donation. Precision’s co‑owner, Alyshca Taylor, says “I am very proud of our dancers’ hard work and dedication, and I love to see them develop into caring, giving members of our community, in addition to being entertaining dancers.”
The dancers are really excited to use their talent to entertain the community and help raise money for the Jumpstart program, and look forward to leaping into your hearts. Come out and enjoy and support this great cause on March 1!
