Dancing northern lights

Summer solstice may just be over a month away, but that’s not stopping the Northern Lights from dancing in Whitehorse.

For the third year running, Northern Lights School of Dance is presenting its contemporary dance showcase called Spanish Rose and Other Short Stories.

The school, which is typically known for its ballet, puts this show on yearly to demonstrate the multi-disciplinary talents of its pupils. The show this year ran at the Yukon Arts Centre on May 11 at 7 p.m. and May 12 at 1 and 7 p.m.
