Annika Dixon-Reusz

Intensive summer

Annika Dixon-Reusz will be attending the Arts Umbrella Summer Dance Intensive in Vancouver this August.

This will be an intensive summer for one young Rosslander dancer.

Annika Dixon-Reusz will be attending the Arts Umbrella Summer Dance Intensive in Vancouver this August, going to the dance equivalent of boot camp for three weeks to hone and refine her craft.

Attendance was by audition and  Dixon-Reusz, 15, nailed it. But she is not taking the opportunity for granted.

“I am very excited about attending this program this summer, and to get the opportunity to interact and learn from other people in the dancing world,” she said.

Dixon-Reusz, a Grade 9 student at Rossland Secondary School, has been dancing with Kootenay Danceworks for about seven years now. She’s not sure yet what she plans on doing in the future but dance will always somehow be part of her life.

“I love to preform, I love dance because it’s like my own personal retreat,” she said. “Whether I’m having a bad or okay day, it all just goes away when I dance and I feel so much better afterwards.

Dance combines art and exercise—two things Dixon-Reusz loves—into one discipline.
