Dance Party

The adults know how popular our dance-themed concerts are, but why should they get all the fun? This year we’ve got a whole program designed just so kids can get their wiggle on. With pieces like Glière’s Russian Sailor’s Dance and Leroy Anderson’s Sandpaper Ballet, you’ll want to dance in your seats – and who are we to stop you?
