PENTICTON - The Cleland Theatre is having a new floor installed, making a lot of young dancers very happy.

The renovation was made possible by a donation from the Kiwanis Music, Dance and Speech Arts Festival, that partnered with the City to acquire a new dance-appropriate floor.

The new floor is a Rosco Adagio dance floor suitable for all forms of dance including ballet, modern, jazz and tap.

“I am absolutely delighted about the developments regarding the dance floor! It is wonderful that the City of Penticton and the Penticton Kiwanis Music Festival can work together towards a new floor for the Cleland Theatre,” said Lorna Bull, Kiwanis Music, Dance and Speech Arts Festival Society Secretary and Vice-President of the Penticton Provincial Host Committee.

“It will be such a benefit for the future. We will be so proud of our theatre and its new, tap-rated floor when our performing artists come to Penticton in June, and all our local dance studios and groups will feel so fortunate now and in the future,” she said.

And with Penticton hosting the 2014 Performing Arts Provincial Festival in June, the donation couldn’t have come at a better time.
