Hundreds of young dancers were ar the Dow Centennial Centre this week.
 
Showtime Promotion's Great Canadian Dance Challenge 2018 attracted approximately 800 dancers to the Fort, with some coming from as far away as British Columbia.
 
The competition began on Wednesday (Mar.21) and will wrap up on Sunday (Mar.25).
 
"We're really happy to see what's going on and see how much talent is out there," said Larissa Stavrou, production manager at Showtime Dance Promotions.
 
The competition, one of several Great Canadian Dance Challenges held across the country each spring, saw performers from a variety of disciplines including ballet, tap, jazz and musical theatre.
 
Dancers competed for a first, second or third place title in each category, though all dancers did receive a medal for their individual score.
 
The best dancers from each Great Canadian Dance Challenge are eligible to compete in the Crystal Classic Grand Championships, held in Kelowna from July 5-8.
 
Other upcoming Showtime Dance Promotion's events include several competitions in Sherwood Park, with the soonest being the Gravity Dance Challenge, taking place from April 11-15.
