Summit School of Dance, Alpine Dance Academy hit stage this weekend in Breckenridge
May 17, 2018
Alpine Dance Academy goes first, and its students' show begins at 6 p.m. Saturday with tickets selling for $15 for adults and $10 for kids. Children 4 and under get in free. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and people are encouraged to arrive early to get good seats.
The program this year, "Born In The New Millennium," will be the studio's first show featuring performers who were all born in the new millennium. As such, the recital will tell a story of what it's like to grow up in the new millennium with all of the music for the show coming from the year 2000 to today. It's tied together by sentimental scenes about what it's like to come of age in the era of Facebook, smartphones and Beyoncé, according to the dance studio.
This year, Alpine Dance Academy has three graduating seniors in Meaghan Flannagan, Molly Caldwell and Sindell Perez-Fuentes.
On Sunday, students from the Summit School of Dance will take the stage for two scheduled shows, one at 2 p.m. and another at 5:30 p.m., both Sunday at the Riverwalk Center. Doors open 15 minutes before each performance.
This recital, titled "Spring Into Dance," comes with a little extra significance for the local dance studio, as it will be the first under new owner, Kelly Threlkeld, who took over after the previous owner, Melanie Frey, decided to take a step back from the business.
