Rara Avis Dancers are pleased to present the 10th Annual Dance Extravaganza and Yuletide World Market on Thursday, Dec 5th, 2013 at the Grand Forks Secondary School Auditorium.  

Over a dozen dance troupes from the Boundary area will be coming together to perform their latest works, offering a rich and varied cultural experience. 

The Dance Extravaganza showcases a wide range of dance artists and styles, from jazz, belly dance and cancan dancing, to an experimental world dance form known as “tribal fusion.”  

This year’s show includes special guests from Kettle Falls, Washington, the highly acclaimed Haran Irish Dancers.  The Yuletide World Market features local artisans selling holiday baking and other unique and handcrafted holiday gifts.  The market opens at 5:30 pm and the doors to the auditorium open at 6:30pm with the show starting at 7pm.  

Advance tickets are available at Thistle Pot Gifts and tickets are available at the door. The vending area is open for folks who wish to peruse the market but do not plan on going to the dance show. The dance extravaganza is an annual event hosted by a different local dance troupe each year.

This year Rara Avis Dancers hope to create a world market and dance experience sure to tantalize all of your senses and get you into the yuletide spirit.  Many of the participating troupes are members of  the Boundary District Arts Council in association with the BC Arts Council. To reserve a table for $18 at the market please contact Kristy at (250) 447-6462 or email kristycharles@hotmail.com
