Five Abbotsford tap dancers have been selected to represent Canada at a major world competition in Germany later this year.

Samantha Kendall, Brittany Pratt and Kirsten Montague, who dance out of the Creative Edge School of Arts, and Jordyn O’Connor and Alyssa Kern, who dance out of Candance in Mission, were all selected to the team following auditions.

The team will compete at the International Dance Organization’s World Tap Dance Championships in Riesa, Germany, in December, with Kendall, Pratt and Montague training out of Lisa’s School of Dance in Langley.

The dancers are working together to fundraise money to pay for their trip. For more information, email EdgeCanadianTapTeamMembers@gmail.com or visit Edge – Canadian World Tap Team Members on Facebook.

O’Connor also is raising funds for the trip. She can be contacted at jordynhoconnor@gmail.com.
