In its third year, the showcase provides an arena for students the ballroom dance, country line dance and belly dance classes to showcase what they have learned during the 10-week sessions.
Its a chance for all the dance classes to come together and show each other what theyve learned, said Terri Cockerham, coordinator for personal enrichment programs and special projects. Its a good chance for people to look and see if its something theyd like to do.
The country line dance classes will begin again in the fall and belly dancing will either have a mini five-week course or begin again in the fall. Ballroom dancing will have a new beginners class starting March 16.
