This year the adjudicator was Braiden Stevenson, who started in dance at Lanigan and went on to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and then performed around the world. He now teaches at Studio One in Saskatoon.
As well as coming from the local area, participants attended from as far away as Muenster, Porcupine Plain, Raymore and Annaheim. From the littlest beginners to soloing teenagers, the dancers all showed enthusiasm and spirit along with talent. Congratulations to all those who participated.
