The Sisters Dance Academy will be performing their ninth-anniversary spring dance recital on Saturday, June 17, at the Sisters High School Auditorium.

The theme of this year's performance is "Dancing Through Time," and each performance will truly take the audience on a beautiful journey through the ages through amazing music, costuming - and, of course, dance.

Featured performances include the contemporary dance piece, "Hallelujah," defining an era dated back to 1025 B.C. Dancers will depict the fables of Greek goddesses as well as portraying a journey of the first pilgrims. Fifteen dancers en pointe will visit the 1600s at the French Palace of Versailles. Performers will step into the 1900s and dance their way through the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression of the 1930s, as well as the age of jazz and swing that carried through to the 1940s and '50s with songs such as "Rosie the Riveter" and "Born to Hand Jive."

Dancers will represent the 1960s through to our modern day, as well as reaching ahead with a futuristic ballet piece entitled "Virtuoso."

"The dancers have had so much fun getting a little taste of what it must have been like to be living in different eras through time and can't wait to share all they have learned over the past six months," said Sisters Dance Academy proprietor Lonnie Liddell. "The Sisters Dance Academy invites our community to support all of the hard work and effort put in by over 150 dancers, ranging in age from 3 to 18 years old."

There will be two shows on Saturday, June 17: a matinee at 1 p.m. and an evening performance at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and teens, $5 for youth ages 12 and younger. Purchase advance tickets in the studio office at 325 N. Arrowleaf Trail, Ste. #107 or at the door. Tickets are reserved seating.
