RHYTHMS OF CHRISTMAS
1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13
Rhythms of Christmas has also become a favorite Laurel Arts holiday tradition. This is the eighth year for this very special holiday presentation.
Each year students from our Performance Company at Laurel Arts Dance volunteer to choreograph the dances for this show. They give up every Saturday from mid-October until the show, they select their music, design their costumes, and rehearse their dances. This year’s choreographers are Cassie Williams, Amber Gaudlip, Kaitlyn Frampton, Caitlin Schmuck, Olivia Ream, Chelsie Cummings, Makenna Messenger, Mya Imhof, Madison Troy and Morgan Troy. They are working with 60 dancers. Our theatre students will also perform holiday skits.
Somerset County Community Band will again participate in the show, playing many traditional Christmas favorites as well as some jazzed-up versions of well-known songs.
The show will be presented at 1 p.m. Saturday, December 13 at Somerset Area High School Auditorium. There is no admission charge, but we will be accepting donations to the Dorothy Dressler Scholarship Fund which benefits many of our dance students.
A cookies and punch reception will follow in the cafeteria.
As one dance mom explained, “Rhythms is so much fun.” Bring your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, and sit back and enjoy a spectacular Christmas show -- who needs the Rockettes!
