As summer draws to an end it is time for San Juan Dance Academy’s second annual dance showcase.
San Juan Dance Academy, founded by Stephanie Jones, has thrived in the Pagosa community as a ballet school training dancers in the Cecchetti method of classical ballet.
New and exciting changes were introduced several years ago when San Juan Dance Academy began offering other forms of dance including jazz, hip hop, lyrical, modern, musical theatre, and belly dance.
This summer, as dancers take the stage, you will see a variety of these dance genres showcased by Pagosa talent. A total of 10 pieces will be performed, including “Bye, Bye, Blackbird” from “Liza with a Z;” “Prayer” from the ballet ”Coppellia;” “He Lives in You” from Broadway’s “The Lion King,” as well as multiple lyrical, jazz, and hip hop routines.
The showcase will take place Aug. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. in the Pagosa Springs High School auditorium. Tickets are $10.
