Recently named Miss Teenage Lacombe County, Clive resident Lucienne Henry will be hosting a street dance on June 20th.

The street dance will run from 7 to 11 p.m. on the main street of Clive as part of the Village’s annual three-day community celebration, Fun Fest.

Henry earned her pageant title at a provincial competition this March. She will now be vying for the Miss Teenage Canada crown in Toronto this August.

Henry said the street dance will tie in with her current fundraiser called Youth Supporting Youth. All of the prizes that will be given away during the street dance on Saturday night have been made and then donated by youth in Clive and Lacombe.

“I know a lot of people my own age who are skilled at trades, artwork or culinary arts,” she said. “I really wanted to showcase all the talent in our community.”

Some of the prizes up for grabs include woodwork made by Cole Hundson, metal work created by Danny Theoret, artwork by Sofia Cappettini and Mia Giles, and tasty treats from the culinary arts by Larrissa Woodrow and Henry.

To coincide with the Youth Supporting Youth fundraiser, Henry, along with several youth collaborators, have also crafted a short film that showcases individualism titled Barcode. They will be debuting the youth-driven film also on Saturday via YouTube.

“The video and promoting youth is a really important message for me,” said Henry. “I really want to make a big impact with this.”

Tickets for the dance draw are $10 and include a minimum six chances to win. Thirty per cent of the proceeds from the draw will be donated to Free the Children, an international charity Henry has selected.

The remaining funds will go towards Henry’s fees that she will incur during the Miss Teenage Canada competition. Tickets are available at various businesses in Clive and Lacombe.

Clive Fun Fest also includes a pancake breakfast, a parade, penny carnival, mini golf and fireworks on the Saturday.
