So you think you can dance? …Maybe? Well, now’s your chance to learn.

So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) Canada season two winner Tara-Jean Popowich is coming to Langford for a series of master classes on Sunday, August 12 at Elevate Dance Centre’s Lakeside Village location .

She’ll be hosting two classes: one for dancers ages eight to 10 (or 12+ with less than four years of training), and a second for dancers age 12 and up (with four or more years of training.)

Watch a video of one of Popowich’s master classes below:

Popowich was crowned Canada’s favourite dancer on SYTYCD Canada in 2009, and has made a career since then working out of New York City and now Los Angeles.

She’s choreographed routines for Carly Rae Jepsen, danced in Pharrell’s video for “Happy,” and is a yearly performer with SYTYCD US All-Stars in China, among plenty of other endeavours.

Space for the classes is limited, so make sure to register early! All participants must wear appropriate dance wear, with hair pulled back. No street clothing or shoes are allowed, and make sure to bring a water bottle.
