Got 2 Dance get into seasonal mode

For the Got 2 Dance performers of the Dec. 6 Christmas recital, the beginning of a magic time of year came alive

For the Got 2 Dance performers of the Dec. 6 Christmas recital, the beginning of a magic time of year came alive as family and friends surrounded them.

Senior dancer Madi Motley says that’s the most special part of the Christmas recital. “The whole family was here,” she said, referring not only to her parents, but also to her grandparents and other extended family members.

With performance times at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and a running time of approximately 45 minutes, Motley and two of her fellow dancers, Virginia Harvey and Karlena Moorcroft, agree it was the perfect recital for families to attend; and for the girls, it’s a happy time with family that brings out the holiday cheer.

“It’s just nice to show them what we’re working on,” said Harvey.

Practicing for the recital, which was held at the Kinsmen Centre, started at the beginning of October and the shows featured jazz, ballet, hip hop, combo and kindergarten pieces.
