Koonce said “T’is the Season to be Joyful” offers something for everyone in the family — high-kicking Rockettes, acapella spiritual voices, hot jazz dances, Medieval madrigals, rockin’ around the Christmas tree, even the intricate footwork of Irish dance and Celtic song.
“Here is a joyous treat for the entire family and a magical way to begin your Christmas season,” she said.
Company and soloist leads are open to singers and dancers, age 8 to adult, and no prior stage experience is needed. Also needed are dancers with experience in jazz, modern, tap and hip-hop styles. All singers need one minute of song prepared and dancers need to be ready for a short choreography session.
