A North Shore dance crew that normally spends every April 29, a.k.a. International Dance Day, doing pop-up shows in public places found a new spot for their sweet moves this year: outside Lions Gate Hospital.
Dancers from Kahlena Movement Studio shook their booties, in a physical distancing appropriate way of course, on Wednesday evening as part of the nightly 7 p.m. cheer for front-line health-care workers and essential services. The dancers performed for patients and staff at locations all around the hospital grounds, encouraging all to join in to share a little joy.

Members of the North Vancouver dance studio, run by Karen Kobel, have also been showing up three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Amica Edgemont care centre where they encourage residents to join in on their balconies.
“We dance from non-judgement and we dance because we love to move, groove, and dance, and help the world smile,” said Kobel in a note to the North Shore News. See below for video and photos.
