The Hamilton Dance Company, also known as HDC, as well as Advanced and Intermediate dance,  are performing at the “Home for the Holidays” show. The show is taking place December fourth through sixth at 7 p.m. in the auditorium, though the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets went on sale on November 8th for $5 at the bookstore and will be $7 at the door. 

The dancers will get to perform before an audience and “have dress rehearsals, perform 3 shows, then the dancers get to invite friends to come and support them,” said Sophia Snyder (11). The songs the dancers are performing to are “Wit It This Christmas, Carol of the Bells, Under the Mistletoe, Snowman, and Come on Christmas,” said Samantha Palmquist (10). There is a large variety of songs and lots of time for the dancers to show off their skills. “I really like the Christmas-ness of it, the non-classical side. Since I’m a classical dancer I don’t usually get to show the contemporary side of me,” said Joelie Joot (10). The Christmas Show is a great opportunity for all the students in the dance program to show what they have learned so far.

Be sure to come out and support your Hamilton Dance company as well as the dance program by watching the show! It’s sure to be a lot of fun and the dancers are going to impress! Buy your tickets in advance at the bookstore and be there!
