Dancers to show their skills in recital

Provided to the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Dance Visions Performing Arts Center competition team will perform its award winning production number, "Waiting for Dolly," on June 7 and 8 at the Bob Boldrick Theater in Carson City.

Dance Visions Performing Arts Center will present its 17th annual dance recitals June 7 and 8 in the Bob Boldrick Theater located at the Carson City Recreation Center, Highway 50 in Carson City.

Both shows begin at 7 p.m. and tickets will be available at the theater both nights. General admission is $15, $20 and $25. Discounted tickets for students and seniors are $12, $17 and $22. Doors open for seating at 6:30 p.m.

For more information or to reserve tickets by phone with a credit card call (775) 588-5425.

The June 7 performance titled “Kidz Rule” will feature elementary through middle-school age dancers performing various styles of dance including ballet, hip hop, jazz and lyrical jazz, tap and partnering.

Ballet Master Bruce King has choreographed a ballet piece from “Coppelia” and will also take the stage with his primary ballet class to showcase their talents.

The following night, June 8, middle school through high school age dancers will perform in the high-energy show titled “Graffiti Rock.” This show features Dance Visions’ more experienced dancers.

One such dancer, Kristina Betts, is a graduating senior and also a 15-year veteran performer with the studio. She will be taking the stage with Kelly Alvarez’s musical theater class performing a solo to the very popular song, “All That Jazz.”

“It has been such a pleasure watching Kristina grow up over the last 15 years in my studio,” Alvarez said. “She has become a beautiful dancer and young lady and we wish her all the best in her life’s endeavors.”

Dance Visions competition team dancers will be showcasing their talents also in both shows. These dancers have recently won many regional and national level awards with their solo, duo/trio and group routines.

Both shows will end with the team’s award-winning production number, “Waiting for Dolly.” Choreographed by Joan Elias, this routine will take the audience back to the glory days of the Broadway musical when Carol Channing was the star in “Hello Dolly” in New York.

From the music selection, to the costuming, to the fantastic displays of dance and athleticism, there will be something for everyone to enjoy in these two performances.
