"There are things inspired by ballet, by modern, by jazz, works that are more theatrical," Artistic Director Rebecca Katz-Harwood says. "We have two tap pieces which is great. We don't always have tap included in the show, but this year we do."

"Dance Works" features performances by students. Katz-Harwood says most of the choreography folks will see has been prepared by students, too. She says some choreographers began thinking about their piece as early as summertime.

"Some of them, the piece is something they've just been thinking about, inspired by an idea or a piece of music" she says.

The energy during a run-through a couple weeks ago was exciting for everyone involved. They are looking forward to sharing their work with a live audience.

The show is aiming to please all kinds of audience members from the experienced dance-goer to someone who is 'thinking about taking the chance' because you've never been to one.

Show times are as follows:

  • Thursday - Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
