CONWAY — The Mount Washington Valley and surrounding communities are invited to enjoy an evening of dance as the Kennett High School Dance Department celebrates 10 years and is proud to present its spring production entitled "10 years and Rising" May 12-14.
This year the team was challenged to learn 11 group routines to represent each year of the dance program. Early in the fall of 2016 a survey was sent to alumni and current dance members to vote on the routines they would like to see brought back to life. The response was overwhelming with 42 people casting their votes.
Some of the routines chosen to bring back were "Minions." "All That Jazz," "Nerdz" and "Pirates of the Caribbean."
"It has been fun bringing old routines back to life and reminiscing about all the students that have come through the program," said Coach Holly Fougere. "The show will also feature 21 'Where are they now' alumni highlight videos. The show is upbeat and fun and appropriate for audiences of all ages."
The Dance Team will also be hosting a fundraiser for former Dance Team member Madison DiSilva who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year. This Saturday, the team will donate $3 from every ticket sale to Madison's Journey to help with her medical bills. There will also be some great raffle baskets every night of the show with proceeds benefiting Madison.
10 Years and Rising will run Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High School. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students in grades 1-12.
