Dance shows set for May 13 & 14

Vicky’s School of Dance will present its 23rd annual spring show on two days this year, May 13 and 14, in the Hillsboro HIgh School Auditorium.

Identical shows will be presented both days, according to Vicky Mohn, director. The two-day format is an effort to accommodate the overflow crowds of previous years, she said.

The theme of this year’s show is “A Salute to America” and will involve more than 120 area dancers from pre-school to college.

Each show will be divided into two segments. The first will involve the youngest dancers and the second show will feature the older dancers.

On Saturday, May 13, the younger dancers will perform from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the older dancers from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

On Sunday, May 14, the younger dancers will perform from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. and the older dancers from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Styles of dance include ballet, liturgical ballet, jazz, tap, pointe and Irish.
