The show begins with Flags a Flyin', choreographed to music by Aaron Copland, which introduces the dancers with a western flare in the style of contemporary dance.Molecules on the Move has great moves inspired by hot sounds of popular music. In contrast, Variation a la Ballet, a solo dance number, shows off classical ballet against a background of classical music. Surf City Swing was choreographed to music by the Beach Boys, and shows how to swing dance and do your own boogie!
Listen to the Wind is a dance drawn from a book of the same name by Greg Mortenson. It tells the true story of his time in a mountain village of Pakistan. After becoming lost in the wilderness, he stumbled into Korphe, a remote village. The residents took him in and nursed him back to health with kindness, friendship and love. In return he built a school for the children of Korphe. It is a heart-warming story of friendship and tolerance that crosses religious and cultural barriers. Choreographed to music by Karl Jenkins, with instrumental selections from Pakistan.
Kids get multiple samples of dance styles in Dance Cafe, choreographed to a mix of current pop music. When it's over, the question is, what's your favorite dance flavor?
