A Burlington dance duo was given a crash course in nutritional arts after receiving a visit from Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Healthy Gourmet” experts.
To celebrate danceScape’s 10th anniversary, studio founder Beverley Cayton-Tang wanted to treat her staff and students to a meal.

The food gurus paid a visit to Cayton-Tang and her team at danceScape’s downtown studio last week to film an episode of Healthy Gourmet.
