ALTON — Shoestring Dance will present 10 dance numbers ranging in styles from hip-hop to contemporary ballet to tap, directed by Rachel Brady and Hilary Harper-Wilcoxen.
The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway.
“Shoestring Dance is built on a very basic idea: Dance is for everyone,” artistic director Hilary Harper-Wilcoxen said.
The dances will be accompanied by classical and popular music, an Allison Kraus song and original live music by Scott Brady, Gabe Brady, Swabu Jefferson and Peter Hussey.
“Our school-age, college and adult performers from Principia College, The Creative Dance Studio, Beverly Farm and special guests are eager to have you join them for an evening filled with learning, fun and artistry,” said Harper-Wilcoxen, who will accompany the show with a running audience-friendly narrative. “We know you’ll walk in but dance out.”
“Dance is an exciting addition to our expanding performing arts series at Jacoby,” said Denny Scarborough, Jacoby president. “We are grateful to Shoestring Dance for bringing together this spectrum of creative talent featuring the joy of movement. This will be a vibrant evening of entertainment.”
Alton Farmers’ Market vendor My Slice of Pie will offer home-baked pumpkin cheesecake, apple-crumb and coconut cream pies with coffee. Food and drink are available at an additional cost. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis and no reservations are required. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10. Students are buy-one, get-one free. For information, call (618) 462-5222 or visit www.jacobyartscenter.org.
