Dance Showcase To Be Held At Forbes Road

Dance Showcase by Forbes Road High School students, 159 Red Bird Drive, Waterfall, will be held November 7 at 2:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Forbes Road High School. Students in the Artist Residency Dance Program will show the dances they have learned from Walker and Savage.

Eighth- and ninth-grade students have been learning historical social dance and related arts of the Renaissance, Colonial, Civil War, Ragtime, the Roaring 20s and the 1950s – 60s eras.

See them dance the farandole, a grand march, Soldiers Joy, the 2-step to a Sousa march, a ragtime 1- step with animal dances, The Big Apple, the Latin American tango and merengue, and the grand finale – Saturday Night Fever line dance.

Come and support your local school students and teachers and reward their commitment, enthusiasm and hard work.
