Peel students take the stage at ninth annual Peel Dance Showcase

More than 500 Peel students in grades 3 to 12 will perform at the ninth annual Peel Dance Showcase on March 26. The event celebrates dance as an art form and showcases the talents of Peel students, while raising funds for the Peel Dance Teachers' Association (PDTA) Dance Scholarship.

"This event is a wonderful way for our students to show their passion for dance, while sharing their artistic talent, and demonstrating collaboration and physical literacy" says Hubert Brard, instructional coordinator for the arts and health and physical education. "Whether it be, hip hop, jazz, modern or Bhangra, dancing serves as a powerful form of self-expression and communication.”
