WHITSUNDAY Dance Connection teacher and choreographer Jenny Featherstone can't believe it has been 20 years since the very first Whitsunday Dance Connection concert.

"It's gone really fast. I feel I could certainly do another 20 years, please," she said.

To celebrate two decades of bringing dance to the community, the dancers at Whitsunday Dance Connection are holding their end-of-year dance concert, which promises to take the audience on a tour through the ages, starting with dinosaurs and cavemen.

"Our concert is called Dance Through the Ages, beginning with dinosaurs and cavemen, following dance trends through the eras, finishing with modern dance styles of today. It's a performance with something for everyone," Ms Featherstone said.

Ms Featherstone and fellow choreographer and teacher Paula Bradley said they were both very excited for the concert weekend.

"We love seeing students dancing up on stage in gorgeous costumes with the challenging choreography that we have given them," Ms Featherstone said.

"It is a very proud moment for us and all the parents."

Dance Through the Ages will be showing at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre from November 27 at 7.30pm.

Further performances will be held on November 28 at 6.30pm and November 29 at 2pm.

"Tickets have sold out for Saturday's show, but there are still tickets available for Friday and Sunday," Ms Featherstone said.

Tickets are available through the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, 4945 2312.
