Three big shows of ‘Legends and Heroes’ as Carlson’s in Cowichan complete another great season

It’s been a busy year for Carlson’s Dance and students and teachers presented the results of their efforts in three huge year-ending shows last weekend.

Packed houses greeted the dancers when they stepped onto the big stage at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre on Friday, June 7, Saturday, and June 8 and everyone went home satisfied from seeing great shows.

Ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, tap dancing: it was all there for everyone to see.
