Adult dance classes resume at Creative Roots in Smithers


Creative Roots Performing Arts LTD. welcomes the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions with open arms.

Last week, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced that capacity limits have been lifted, fitness classes can resume and there can be spectators at sporting and arts events.

According to owner and director Amanda Dorscht, adult programming has been affected by the restrictions, but youth programs may continue.

She said when the restrictions were implemented, those who attended the adult classes were left disappointed.

“Dance and fitness is a really good physical and mental as well as creative outlet for these adults, it’s also an important social aspect of their lives and so taking classes away from them has taken away a really important activity,” said Dorscht.

She also said it was great to see adult classes resume since the restrictions were lifted.

“They’re all super grateful, super excited to be back in the studio with their friends and having that social aspect again and just that physical outlet and the creative outlet and everybody’s really excited to be back. in the studio,” Dorscht said. .

Adult classes offered include ballroom, ballet, hip hop and tap dancing.

Meanwhile, Dorscht added that the dance studio will not be holding a recital this year due to the late lifting of restrictions.

She added that it takes the whole year to start planning and organizing the event.

Anyone interested in participating in one of Creative Roots’ courses is encouraged to contact Dorscht via email which can be found on the studio’s website.
