Dance Art Dance to break down barriers with the power of dance
PINE BELT, Mississippi (WDAM) – A nonprofit, Dance Art Dance, is preparing to present a recital showcasing the diversity of dance.
“I’m excited because it’s a bit new. It’s something that I have the opportunity to experience for the first time and see how it is and basically appreciate it and see how it all ends up in the end, ”Amaria said. Bowie.
The organization’s president, E. Jae James, said the recital was called The Stereo-Cracker.
“It’s a bit like a Wizard of Oz and the Sorcerer, so instead of Nutcracker, we have the “stereo” cracker with stereo basically means stereotypes. And instead of our Clara having a nutcracker, she’s going to have a stereo, ”James said.
James said Clara will be able to switch radio stations to show a variety of dancers.
“In our show, (we) want to be able to showcase different types of dancers, body types, skill types and allow all the kids to shine in a show rather than being a show for just one type of dancer.” said Jacques.
Halei Hood is thrilled to be one of these dancers. She’s been dancing for 11 years and she says she wants to dance professionally when she grows up.
“I think this production will help me learn and grow, so that I can eventually get there, and I’m really excited for what’s to come,” Hood said.
The recital will take place at the Saenger Theater on Sunday January 9.
If you want to attend the show, you can purchase your tickets for $ 13 HERE.
