Hip Hop dance to shake River Rock

Hundreds of dancers from across British Columbia and the United States will be competing in the fourth annual High School High Hip Hop Dance Competition at River Rock Show Theatre this weekend.

More than 400 dancers will gather for the event on Sunday, Feb. 19, with the competition kicking off at 2 p.m., according to event co-founder Anita Perel-Panar.

Billed as the largest competition of its kind in B.C., more than 20 high schools and 40 teams will be participating for bragging rights and the title of best high school dance team.

"This is an opportunity for kids to do something active and fun while showcasing their talents," said Perel-Panarm, who along with Jheric Hizon also co-founded A Star Studio Productions Society.

Among past judges were winning members of the hit TV show America's Best Dance Crew, and members of So You Think You Can Dance.
