Disney’s Belle, Bob Marley take the stage

Summit Daily staff report

Alpine Dance Academy in Frisco will present its spring recital on Saturday at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge, complete with a Disney theme and tributes to the famous musicians of the recent and not-so-recent past.

The performance will begin at 6 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults or $10 for students. Children 4 and under are free. Tickets are available at the door only. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and people are encouraged to come early to claim a good seat.

The program this year will feature "The Wonderful World of Disney," with the first act dedicated to everything Disney. Throughout Act 1 there will be appearances from all the Disney favorites, such as Ariel, Winnie The Pooh, Jasmine, Olaf and more.

Each class at the dance school will portray an element of the Disney universe. For example, the pre-K classes will be little Belles for Ballet and Lions — along with Simba — for tap.

The second act will pay tribute to musicians lost recently and not-so-recently. Dancers will perform to Frank Sinatra, Prince, David Bowie, George Michael, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley and more.

To add another layer of fun, the school's "acting students" will present each artist to the audience by delivering a monologue as that artist. To do this, they had to research the artist, write the monologue and create a costume.
