Class Act Dance Troupe brings its award-winning pieces to the Warsaw Community High School Performing Arts Center Saturday at 3 p.m.
This non-profit performing company was created in 1986 to provide students with additional opportunities to utilize their dance training and has grown into more.
The company of 22 students, ages 9 to 18, has performed for such events as Walt Disney World’s Magic Music Days, the Legacy program in New York City and for the Harlem Globetrotters, as well as focusing on community involvement through local performances.
“This concert will showcase the artistry, talent and dedication of our students,” said CADT director Tammy Seibold. “We have everything from a dynamic jazz duet created by Chicago-based choreographer Jeremy Plummer, to a classical ballet production by Kristina Collier and a high energy tap to the song ‘Ladies Choice’ from ‘Hairspray.’ There is truly something for everyone in this show.”
Seibold also stated, “Our students are passionate about dance and it shows in every moment. You can feel their intensity as they portray the impact of bullying and negativity in ‘They Don’t Care About Us,’ then with just as much conviction they switch to the comedic frenzy of ‘Coffee In A Cardboard Cup.’ As the show unfolds, you will be amazed by the versatility of these dancers.”
Tickets may be purchased at the door or at Debra Collier’s School of Dance by calling 574-267-7055.
Proceeds from the performance benefit the CADT scholarship fund.
