Project Dance Chilliwack’s LV3 dance team competes in Quebec June 3 to 6.

Project Dance has a junior hip-hop team headed to Laval, QC to represent Chilliwack in a national competition.

The group of ‘LV3’ dancers aged 9 to 12 are taking part in the Canadian National Hip Hop Championships June 3 to 6.

They’ve been training and competing all year to prepare for the competition, successfully qualifying from the regional competitions in Burnaby in March.

If they place in the top three of their division in Laval, they’ll represent Canada at the World Hip-Hop Championships in Las Vegas this August, competing against elite teams from 45 countries.

The dancers in the group are Asiah Alvarez, Kelly Blancas, Emma Jackson-Gola, Brooklyn Hislop, Olivia Maarhuis, Mya McBeth, Micaela Nyland, Trinity-Dawn Schiazza, Maya Dombowsky and Eden Wedel.

They are led by choreographer Paul Otterbein and assistant Liam Mackie.
