The Summit’s Shiamak Bollywood Group
The hardworking and talented team from The Summit led by The Shiamak Group.
Jeremy Sellars, who attends a number of North Shore ConneXions programs, is charismatic as well as talented. Last year he was Elvis - and brought the house down. This year he will close the show with another audacious performance supported by Lindsay Krack, Conni Smudge, Chris Gonzales, Danielle Juifs & The Shaimak Group.
The Unstoppable Conni Smudge
Chris Bolton has yearned for the spotlight ever since he was a boy. He would often put on shows in the living room after big family Sunday dinners. Belting out the commercial “Wonderful, Wonderful Wonder Bra-aw-aww” was his favourite. Later, he attended Gastown Actors Studio where he was inspired under the tutelage of the phenomenal Jessica Van Der Veen.
Developing a character named Conni Smudge has been a twenty year journey for Chris, and it has been his most rewarding to date. “She” has taken him all over the globe. Conni’s wit, charm and approachable nature has afforded her the honour of performing in the most unlikely of places. From the biker bars of Nanaimo to the grand theatres of Europe, Mz Smudge has done them all. Chris/Conni adores being a reporter with Outlook TV. It gives “Her” the ability to show the world what an amazingly inclusive, loving, entertaining city Vancouver is!
The Vanleena Dance Academy
has been a highlight of our show for a number of years.
The Vanleena teachers focus on fostering self confidence and a love of dance - for life!

Harbour Dance Centre
Harbour Dance Centre's Intensive Training Program (ITP) consists of 20 to 25 hours a week in dance, voice, performance, circus and other dance related studies. The directors and participants work closely together and after careful evaluation, the directors customize the dancers schedule and guide them through the program. Because Harbour Dance Centre is an established dance facility, the ITP students get many chances to perform for events and shows in Vancouver. They work with all of the HDC faculty who have successful dance careers to offer mentorship and guidance for the next generation. We offer seminars on nutrition, injury prevention, auditioning, talent agencies, US Visas, casting agents, dancers currently on tour and many more. We try to give the students as many tools as possible to make sure they are fully prepared for a career in dance.
