    LETHBRIDGE - There isn't much that impresses Shania Twain, her words of course from one of her most popular songs, but one dancer from Lethbridge caught her eye in the past and it's led to a friendship both personal and professional.

    Popowich says the industry is so small nowadays that she just gets calls, instead of having to audition against thousands of people.
