NU students to show off talent at ‘Evening of Dance’

Those of you who have been to “An Evening of Dance” at Nevada Union High School probably don’t have to read any further than the Know & Go box. “Just tell me the dates, so I can buy my ticket,” I can hear you say.

If you haven’t witnessed one of these performances before, however, just know that it’s probably going to be more than you expected from high school dancers – much more. Why? Because some of these students have trained since they were 5 years old. Because the synergy and creativity in the Theatrical Dance Department is awesome due so much to its director, the talented Yelena Holt, who choreographed and is directing this show. And because the students are committed to the dance and are eager to perform at top level.

The show will feature the talents of beginning, intermediate and advanced dancers in jazz, modern, ballet, pointe and theatrical dance. Holt typically uses a story arc format, incorporating several interwoven dances for the advanced students. Combining the talents of theater (great set design) and dance makes for dance drama that is compelling – and fun. Two hundred dancers will show off their talent, dedication and enthusiasm this year.

With five nights to choose from, get your tickets for this popular show now, so as not to be disappointed.
