Students at Spiral Dance perform.

Dancers help out with holidays

White Rock dance company raising funds for competition in Las Vegas.

A White Rock dance company is offering holiday services to help raise funds for an international dance competition in Las Vegas.

The girls and boys at Spiral Dance – all 17 years old and under – will be squeezing in gift-wrapping and babysitting while they train for the Dance Power competition.

On Dec. 18, the 30 dancers will host a fundraiser at the dance studio, 1471 Stayte Rd., which will include a children’s Christmas camp.

Parents are invited to drop off their youngsters at 9:30 a.m. with a packed lunch while they finish helping Santa Claus with the shopping list. The camp, which will be open until 6 p.m., will have snacks, games and activities to keep the children busy all day.

The dancers will also be twirling ribbons that day with their wrapping team. People can drop of their gifts with a list of what present is for which child, and the group will wrap away.

A minimum donation of $10 is asked for the services.
