Town and Village School of Dance’s Honor Company and Apprentices had yet another successful competition season. The Honor Company is comprised of Town and Village students who are chosen each year through an audition process and faculty evaluation. Apprentices are younger dancers, chosen in the same manner, who are beginning to learn about being in Honor Company.
The studio competed in three regional competitions: Kentucky State Dance Championships in Lexington, Ky., American Dance Awards in Dayton, Ohio and Showbiz Talent Competition in Louisville, Ky.
The Honor Company presented 12 pieces, including solos, a duet and several small and large group numbers, as well as the now-traditional large production number.
Original costumes were created by Joan Wade of Wades Embroidery. Wade was presented with an Outstanding Costume award.
“We are so proud of our students,” commented Town and Village Executive Director, Lyndy Franklin Smith. “They represented us well and did a fantastic job. All we ask is that they better themselves each time they perform. And they did just that, and brought home some terrific awards as well.”
The pieces, along with many others, can be seen at the annual Town and Village recital. Performances will be held at Harrison County High School. Show times are May 12 and 13 at 7 p.m. and May 14 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Prologue (showcasing solos, duets and small groups) is May 12 and 13 at 6:15 p.m. and May 14 at 1:15 p.m.Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the door.
