Heather Kendell's dance company, DansArts et al, will be hosting a fundraiser for the Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society.

Vivaldi's Four Seasons is brought beautifully to life in the contemporary ballet, "The Changing Seasons". It is an exploration of how intricately entwined we are with nature. The ebb and flow of life and death reflected in the changing of the seasons. In the ultimate dance towards our demise, our last breath is preserved to bring forth hope of new life, allowing us to realize we truly are dancing in harmony with nature.

In addition to the dance performances there will be silent auctions. Different items each day!

August 20, 2016 (7pm)
August 21, 2016 (2pm)
*Doors will open 1 hour before the performance for the silent auctions!*

Chief Sepass Theatre
9096 Trattle Street
Langley, BC

Tickets: $20.00
Available online through Tickets Tonight
Also, available at the door

Proceeds from the performances and silent auctions will be donated to the Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society.

Please join us and show your support for members of your local dance community and the Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society.

Thank you,
