The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Arts Academy Dance Program presents “Khoros” on Thursday and Friday at the Yates Memorial Theatre.

Derived from the Greek word for song and dance, Khoros blends live music, artistry and athletic dance for a one-of-a-kind audience experience, says LCI Arts Academy Dance director Geordan Olson.

“Those coming to the show can expect to see some of the most incredibly talented kids I have ever met, and that includes the LCI Combo Band, the LCI Jazz Band and the LCI Jazz Choir,” she says. “We have almost every strand of the LCI fine arts in our show. I am just so impressed with the calibre of talent of these students. This show is about the beauty of music and the special relationship dance has to music.”

LCI will present pieces by well-known local choreographers and showcase works from celebrated established Canadian choreographers such as Alias Dance Project from Toronto, Sarah Dolan, former assistant choreographer for SYTYCD and director of O2 in Calgary, Shayne Johnson and Catherine Hayward from Decidedly Jazz Danceworks in Calgary, and Ajay Musodi, director of AKM in Calgary.

Tickets for the performances cost $20 each. Thursday’s performance will start at 6 p.m. Friday’s performances will take place at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

“I would encourage people to come out and see the level of talent and passion in the approximately 120 high school students there that are in the show,” says Olson. “And just to see all the strands of fine arts coming together, and the energy and love the kids have for what they do.”
