‘winterDance’ for all ages, different tastes

The Center for the Arts is celebrating the holiday season with a dance that will not only appeal to different ages, but also to different tastes. Called “winterDance,” the performance includes winter-themed pieces by at least eight community dance groups, with Artistic Director George Jayne promising everything from ballet to clogging.

And should you think Christmas is not complete without “The Nutcracker,” excerpts from the ballet will also be performed.

“We’re excited to be presenting something new for the holidays,” said production coordinator Karen Wallack-Eisen, “a show that will include even more local dancers than participated in ‘The Nutcracker.’ We’re even planning a gentle snowfall on stage, in case nature doesn’t supply us with one outside.”

In addition to the dance performances in the main theater, a “winterArt” exhibit in the gallery will offer artwork and ornaments for purchase. Father Christmas will sit for photographs with families in “The Nutcracker” sleigh while music plays and refreshments are served.

Dance, music, art, eats – all things for the entire family to enjoy.

Participating dance groups:

AirAligned, Bitney Springs High School, Flamenco Puro, Nevada City School of the Arts, Razzmatazz, Salsa Sierra, Sierra Dance Institute and Tommyknocker Cloggers and Hot Shots.
