Since 2005, local dance studio e-dance has put on an annual recital at the end of the school year showcasing their students. This year, the talent of dancers from all around Lancaster County will be on display June 11th and 12th at the Leffler Chapel and Performance Center at Elizabethtown College. Dancers of all ages will perform a wide variety of styles: hip-hop, tap, broadway tap, musical theater, pointe, ballet, lyrical, jazz, and modern. Dancers will also perform to a variety of songs, ranging from Latin chart-toppers like “Gasolina” to broadway hits like “America,” heard in West Side Story.
If you love dance, you can support the studio and the many E-town students who dance there by buying a ticket to a show that represents their year of hard work. Tickets will be available for purchase at e-dancecenter.com starting May 7th. If you want to join in on the fun, browse the website for classes you might be interested in taking yourself; summer classes are open for registration through June 1st. Take the opportunity to make new friends, get exercise, or sweat away any worries you may have. Dance offers a sense of catharsis; it’s a way to relieve stress, keeping you mentally and physically healthy. The experienced instructors and teacher assistants at e-dance have helped their students grow as dancers and move on to big things following their high school careers.
Whether you take class yourself or buy a ticket to see those who worked hard in their classes, e-dance is ready to welcome you.
