Repertory Dance Theatre's Ring Around the Rose, a former Best of the Beehive winner for "best cheap kids' show," makes its return this weekend. And this Saturday's show is one of our favorites.
Ballet West II dancers will perform for the program at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center at 11 a.m. on Jan. 12. Dancers and a narrator will use the story and character from "The Nutcracker" to give kids an introduction to the art of ballet. The show should be a good one for parents, too, as it incorporates dance, music and visual arts.
Kids are encouraged to participate in the show from their seats, and a few lucky ones might be brought on stage. Along with a performance, dancers will tell kids what it's like to work in the performing arts.
