Pitt Meadows' Christina Hamdon joins a group of talented dancers in an original presentation by The Source Dance Company in Vancouver this week.

The Life Of Grace is an exploratory look into the life  of one woman who is dying and remembering her wonderful time on earth.

The inspiration behind the storyline is based on the theme: “Your whole life flashes before your eyes before you die.”

The story opens on the woman being attended to by paramedics. Through narration and flashbacks, the audience is allowed glimpses into the woman’s most  memorable days, both good and bad.

In each piece, the woman’s character is performed by a different dancer, including Hamdon, 18.

This is to showcase the many talented dancers in  the company, as well as represent the different personality stages of the woman as she grows and matures.

Artistic director and founder of The Source Dance Company, Joanne Pesusich has had 10 successful seasons with the company.

The Source Dance Company is a semi-professional dance company based out of Harbour Dance Center in Vancouver.

“The level of dance in Vancouver is fierce,” says Pesusich. “I think dance is becoming more popular and appreciated for the level of skill and dedication it truly takes to be a dancer.”

• The Life Of Grace plays the Norman Rothstein Theatre (Oak and 41st Street ) in Vancouver Wednesday, June 29 to Sunday, July 3 in Vancouver and July 5 in Kelowna. For tickets, visit www.sourcedanceco.com.
