Kites, dogs and dancers meet on stage at Bell Centre
Dogs, kites and a Langley ballerina will share the stage at the Bell Performing Arts Centre this weekend.
Sixteen-year-old Erin Mozel will dance the lead in Shadows of Eternity, an original show directed and choreographed by Ray Underwood, on Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 4 at 2 p.m.
Mozel, a Grade 11 student at Langley Fine Arts School, will perform alongside 20 dogs and four indoor kite flyers as well as one protection dog in the piece, which is “a grand and colourful fantasy set in ancient Egypt.”
In the story, a young pharaoh, played by Tristan Underwood — another LFAS student — is kidnapped by shadow creatures and taken to their tomb world.
The show promises “all of the excitement of indoor kite flying, ballet dancing, ribbon dancing, dogs synchronizing tricks to music and a protection dog.”
Mozel has been dancing since the age of three and spent several years training at Lavrova Classical Ballet Academy under the direction of world-renowned prima ballerina Miss Irina Lavrova.
From there, she went on to explore other styles of dance, which led her to compete at the Dance World Cup. Erin was then invited to spend a year training at the National Ballet School in Toronto.
