Mission is last stop for Ballet Kelowna

The performance will happen in Mission April 16 at the Clarke Theatre

Ballet Kelowna’s Passages will be performed at the Clarke Theatre on April 16. This is your last chance to see the dance company in its current state.

Several weeks ago the outgoing board suspended the company’s operations; not because they were in debt but rather they worried about being sustainable, explained Pam Alexis of Alexis Event Management, who is bringing the show to Mission.

With a “groundswell” of community support, there is hope Ballet Kelowna will have a new board and will be viable again within a year, said Alexis, noting Mission has the chance to support professional dance and prove “we do care about the arts in our province.”

Clarke Theatre manager Bronwen Sutherland, added, “For students of dance, it is imperative to be exposed to a high level of professionalism as it provides an opportunity for the young dancers to dream about their own careers in dance.”

Tickets to Ballet Kelowna’s Passages are available at the Clarke Theatre, Mission Leisure Centre, Fraser Valley Academy of Dance and Jazz-Ma-Tazz in Abbotsford and Maple Ridge. For more information, call Pam Alexis of AEM Alexis Event Management. Partial proceeds of this performance will be going to Culture Kids.
