Dance school to offer images of Christmas at holiday show
By Mary Ann Holley for The Sheboygan Press, Wisconsin (what a lovely name for a town)
There is nothing like the sight of glistening crinoline and elegant dancers to raise our holiday spirits.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday the Foerster Academy of Dance will bring ballet and more to the stage of the University of Wisconsin Fine Arts Theatre.
About 30 dancers ages 8 to adult — members of the school’s elite dance company — will present “Spirit of the Holidays: a Celebration of Dance,” which will offer “a cross-cultural performance integrating a variety of dance and movement.”
“It’s not just a Christmas show, but a holiday show, presenting images of Christmas in a very general way, focusing on family and getting together and the spirit that touches everyone,” artistic director and choreographer Kristine Foerster said. “It’s not just directed toward one religious group or one cultural group, but designed to acknowledge all aspects of the holiday season.” click for more
