dance umbrella Set To Showcase A Year’s Work With ‘Steps in Time: The Sequel’
(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – A cherished spring tradition returns next week: dance umbrella’s end-of-year showcases at Confederation Centre of the Arts. These spirited presentations present the amazing results of a year’s worth of training for beginning and emerging dance and musical theatre talent. The matinee showcases P.E.I.’s junior and elementary classes while the evening features the intermediate, teen, senior and adult students.
This year, Confederation Centre celebrate 30 years of dance umbrella, founded by Peggy Reddin and Julia Sauvé. dance umbrella’s first ever year-end performance showcase was entitled Steps in Time, held back in 1989 at the Mack, and this year students will perform Steps in Time: The Sequel. As the company grew, it became an official part of Confederation Centre’s suite of arts education programs, joining in 2005.
The public is invited to come out and celebrate this outstanding dance program that has helped build dance and movement skills, self-confidence, and creativity in thousands of young Islanders for three decades.
“It has been a joy to work with such talented and dedicated students and instructors over the years,” offers Reddin, now the director of Arts Education at the Centre. “As we look back, we feel a great sense of pride in the positive impact we have had on so many lives and we look forward to continuing to instill a love for dance in the young and not-so-young!”
Confederation Centre wishes to acknowledge the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their continued support. dance umbrella is a proud part of the Arts Education Portfolio at Confederation Centre.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
