Dancers of all ages feature in an adaptation of Disney’s Tangled, a Rapunzel story

Just For Kicks dancers are preparing to bring tangled retelling of a well-known fairy tale to life.

The Salmon Arm dance studio’s ballet department is rehearsing for an upcoming presentation of a dance-focused adaptation of Disney’s Tangled, which tells the story of Rapunzel and her adventures.

Guests can see the story unfold with shows at 6 p.m. from March 9 to 11. There’s will also be a 1 p.m. performance on Saturday, March 11.

Beginner ballerinas are showcased as glowing lanterns and sprightly animals, while more experienced dancers perform the longer scenes as title characters Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Mother Gothel and more.

“This is our first show back, our first big show,” said Just for Kicks owner and main instructor Patty Fleming. “We had little ballets but on and off.

“We want people to come and see what we’ve been working on, and some of the older people in our community to come and support our younger dancers.”

Tickets for the show are available at Shuswap Tickets and Gifts in Piccadilly Mall for $12 each. The show is performed at Just for Kicks studio’s main building, 481 5th Ave. SW, Salmon Arm.
