The Kootenay Festival of the Arts ran its dance portion at the Charles Bailey Theatre from April 5th to April 8th this year.  The photo above shows two young dancers, Ali Ferguson and Ava Jinjoe, who earned spots at the Provincial dance event in May.  Other provincial nominees include Sophie Hargreaves, Isabella Mitchell, and Anna Cooper. 

The music and voice portions of the Festival will take place this week starting on April 18-22 with the Highlights Concert on April 22 at the First Presbyterian Church in Trail.

The Festival is very grateful to sponsors Teck Metals Ltd., The Kiwanis Club of Trail, The Le Roi Foundation, Columbia Power Corp., Nelson and District Credit Union, Kootenay Savings, Mindful Mountain Yoga, Best Western Hotel (Trail), Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Registered Piano Teachers Society of BC.
