The pandemic has made many things, including classrooms go virtual. So, how do students at a high school dance academy get to show off their moves? They screen it at a movie theatre. Mass gatherings at live shows may be just around the corner for Albertans, but not in time for students at the LCI Arts Academy Dance. So instead, they chronicled their entire year and will premiere it to the public at The Movie Mill later this month. Artistic director Geordan Olson shares with us (in the video above) what you can expect to see when The Show Goes On hits the silver screen.
The show is not only a treat for the audience, but was also a great experience for the students. They say that taking dance classes and workshops via Zoom was unique experience, and screening their entire year at a movie theatre is a memory that will last forever.
The documentary is set to premiere at The Movie Mill’s Drive-in June 28 and 29.
