Get out your calendar and mark down November 8at 6:30 pm for the Tabor Academy Fall Dance Recital or extravaganza, if you would like a better description.
The Tabor Academy dancers will take the big stage of the Fireman Center for Performing Arts, in Hoyt Hall, 245 Front Street, Marion, for the first time under the direction of Ms. Kimberlee Williams, a new faculty member at the school, who is also the co-director of equity and inclusion, a Spanish teacher, and a dorm parent. Williams started dancing when she was six years old and trained with some of Debby Allen’s teachers in the DC area. She has had the opportunity to perform, coach, and choreograph for the last 21 years and hopes to never stop dancing. She shared that she “hopes to inspire those who don’t fit the stereotype of what a dancer looks like to pick up dancing and fall in love with it, just the same way I did.”
The show will include various forms of dance from contemporary to hip hop to ballet. Williams has also introduced an African piece to the show and many others as solos, duets, and company numbers. “This year we hope to connect the audience to the meaning behind each piece and to share what the dance program is like to encourage others to join us in the spring or in the fall of next year,” said Williams.
“Everyone who loves music, drama, dance, and fun should join us at this dance recital. You don’t want to miss this!” said Kerry Saltonstall, Director of Communications.
The event is free and open to the public, so invite a friend and join in the fun.
