ORANGE CITY – The third annual An Evening of Dance will feature preschoolers through college students, dancing at the Unity Christian Knight Center Saturday, Feb. 1.
The dance teams from MOC-Floyd Valley High, Unity Christian High and Northwestern College, and students from Just For Kix and Robin’s School of Dance, will present an hour-long show.
The 7:00 p.m. performance will feature a variety of dance styles, under the leadership of dance instructors Emily Loveland, Melissa Knobloch, Becky Donahue and Robin Dohrer. Dancers are all ages, from preschoolers to college students.
The Northwestern team – 20 young women and one man – will be competing at the GPAC Cheer & Dance Invitational at Fremont, NE the following weekend. Unity and MOC-FV will be performing separately on Feb. 1, but also one dance together. Three ensembles from Robin’s School of Dance will perform, including a musical theatre dance, a hip-hop and a tribute to Michael Jackson. And, of course, the young dancers from Just for Kix will steal the show.
The show is a celebration of the art of dance, said Donahue, dance instructor and a member of the Orange City Arts Council board. Many families are part of the dance community, but each year the Arts Council offers An Evening of Dance, to share the dancers’ talents with the broader citizenry.
Emcee of the evening will be Jim Schaap of Alton.
Admission is $1 for adults, free for students.
An Evening of Dance is sponsored by the Orange City Arts Council. For more information, call 712-707-4885 or email ocArts@orangecityiowa.com.
