Spring Dance Showcase May 10 & 11


CROW features Flight, ballet, Tutu Dads & more

May 2019 — Dancers of all ages will take the stage at the Florence Events Center on Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11, at 7 p.m., as CROW presents a mixed genre Spring Dance Showcase. The event is open to the public, and CROW audiences are encouraged to come and support the wonderful performers.

“This is an opportunity for the talented youth and adults in our dance community to share their amazing talents, while inspiring and educating the general public and generations of future dancers,” says Melanie Heard, CROW’s Artistic Director, and director of CROW’s “Flight” Dance Team. “Dance is my first love, and will always hold a very special place in my heart.”

Heard’s artistic background stems from the genre of classical ballet, which she studied with the Joffrey Trainee Program, Kirov’s Universal Ballet School, Ballet West and Houston Ballet. She is committed to bringing that same level of dance professionalism to the local area, and is excited about the future of Dance in the community of Florence.

During the showcase, several original choreography pieces will be debuted. Local dancer and teacher Cara Beere will also present a brand-new hip hop piece with the Flight Dance Team.

The 2019 Spring Dance Showcase will feature class performances by CROW’s Youth Ballet, Contemporary, and Hip Hop classes, which are choreographed by Mackenzie Calvert, Siarrah Rain and Beere.

There will be several mesmerizing solo, duo and small group performances by CROW students. In addition, local adult dancers will dazzle audiences with exotic and unusual genres. The Tutu Dads will pirouette back to the stage with another epic crowd-pleaser.

Last but not least, the Tip Top Tappers and Teen Tappers will perform entertaining tap numbers.

All proceeds from the show support the CROW Dance education program, including costumes and scholarships for youth to attend future dance classes and workshops.

Adult tickets are $14, military/seniors are $13 (with ID at box office only) and youth (12 and under) are $10. For tickets to the Spring Dance Showcase, stop by the Florence Events Center Box Office, 715 Quince St., call 541-997-1994 or visit eventcenter.org.
