Big finish for Dance Workshop season

Staff Reports

The Dance Workshop wrapped up their season at the Montbleu showroom June 18, where 150 dancers age 2-70 from the Carson Valley and beyond performed for more than 800 guests.

The ages varied as much as the dance styles. Tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, ballroom, contemporary, lyrical and musical theater were all on display.

This show was a tribute to the best music from our favorite movies and had the crowd singing along at almost every point.

Highlights from the show included four large production pieces and guest star Record-Courier Publisher Pat Bridges.

Bridges and his ballroom partner, Julie McCain, assistant ballroom teacher for Dance Workshop, performed their foxtrot from the "Gotta Dance" fundraiser.

Montbleu's professional showroom crew provided lighting and sound.
