The Hot Springs Middle and High School Dance Program recently presented its spring benefit concert, Dance for Humanity, on April 13. With each dance, social issues such as racism, hate and violence were addressed while inspiring a world of peace, equality and light.
The show included 150 HSMS/HSHS student dancers, 15 elementary workshop students in grades K-6, six HSMS dancing teachers, 20 iCan Dancers and their partners, the Little Rock Professional Company, 12 student crew members, and the 13 students of the Hot Springs Dance Troupe.
The Hot Springs Dance Troupe also hosted a silent auction during the show to help raise funds for their performance trip to Europe through Young! Tanzsommer in June 2018. The 7-12th grade program is directed by Amy Bramlett Turner, alum of HSSD, who is passionate about teaching the art of movement and inspiring students to be dedicated and responsible leaders through program design and choreography, a news release said.
At the school show, the dancers performed for 160 HSIS students, 40 OVPA Students, 100 HSHS students and over 200 HSMS students to share and inspire other students. Michelle Watts' HSWCHS visual art students also displayed their work on social justice.Entertainment on 04/28/2017
