Alternative rock-jazz dance performance at LTCC
The Dance Project 2, a contemporary fusion of alternative rock and jazz dance, will have performances Saturday and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at Lake Tahoe Community College.
It will be the second show in three years produced and directed by Jessica Broyles, who is also one of the cast’s seven dancers.
Broyles, 26, grew up in Gardnerville and has been teaching dance for more than 10 years.
“I want to make this an annual showcase for artists from the whole region,” she said.
New this year is the addition of singer Alana Holland, who is also in the cast of “Lipstick” and the upcoming “Dancing in the Street” at Harveys Casino Resort.
In fact, five dancers from Broyles’ show perform in “Lipstick,” a Las Vegas review-type show.
“This will be different from what there is at the clubs and showrooms,” Broyles said. “It is more of an artistic performance.”
Kristina Betts, a senior at Whittell High School, and Becca Lincoln, a 16-year-old home-school student from Meyers, will also dance in the show, which lasts a little more than an hour with an intermission.
The show costs $8.
