Another regular feature of the annual dance concert is a raffle that helps support such activities as sending student dancers to the American College Dance Festival and Conference.
“I often see a big jump in the maturity of the dancers who attend the festival,” Sharon Butcher said. “When they see what other dancers in other places are doing, it really makes a difference. There’s a greater level of maturity, ability and attitude about the art form. It shows as well in their performance skills.”
This year the prizes from local businesses include an ipad mini, as well as gift certificates. Tickets will be sold at all performances, and the drawing is held on the final Saturday.
Note: The following descriptions of dances in the concert are based on statements by the choreographers.
