Spring Dance Festival takes place May 1 and 2

LAKEPORT – The Lake County Arts Council's 29th Annual Spring Dance Festival is fast approaching and is the premier dance event in Lake County.

At long last, this year's performances will be held at our own Soper-Reese Community Theatre at 275 S. Main in Lakeport, with a matinée at 1 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 1, and a Sunday matinée at 2 p.m. on May 2. Doors open one-half hour prior to the performance.

This year's theme is "We Should Be Dancin" and is being assembled by a stellar cast of local choreographers who include Antoinette Goetz, Sheila LaVine, Michelle John-Smith from Lakeport and Annette Lee from the Konocti Dance Academy in Clearlake.

These studios, partnering with the Lake County Arts Council, will delight you with a jam-packed program featuring more than 130 Lake County dancers, including young and talented budding choreographers, who will present two hours of a wide variety of dance styles from delicate ballet to robust clogging.

Add the nostalgic rhythms of Broadway and tap, hip-hop, belly dancing, hula, ballroom dancing and a grand finale with the entire cast, and "you will be dancin'" as you exit the theater.

General admission tickets cost $15 and children's tickets cost $10.

Tickets can be purchased at the Main Street Gallery located at 325 N. Main St. and at Catfish Books in the Willow Tree Plaza on 11th St. in Lakeport, and at Wild About Books on Olympic Drive in Clearlake.

Reserved seating at $20 are available at the Theatre box office on Thursdays from noon until 5 p.m., or by calling 707-263-0577 or online at
