David Bowie’s “Magic Dance” from The Labyrinth sets the theme for In the Wings Dance Studio’s recital production, “Dance, Magic, Dance,” this Friday and Saturday on the El Tejon School stage, says co-founder Crystal Adams.
“This isn’t Harry Potter wizards or rabbits popping out of hats, it means that dance itself is magical and our production will portray that. It makes people happy. We want to share that love and that magic with everyone,” Adams laughed.
Holding a gala recital with glittering costumes, fun sets and imaginative choreography at the end of the school year always “makes sense,” Adams says. The studio is completing its third full year offering classes, continuing a long tradition started by Janis Schmidt, followed by Jamie Roberts’ Dance Studio.
The seats are typically packed. This year 180 students will perform, including a good number of adults.
“Our all-boys Hip Hop class has been a big hit. The audience goes crazy for them,” Adams said, adding “You’ll also see new numbers from our competition performance team that has been showing up to community events.”
Friday’s show begins at 6 p.m. and Saturday’s at 4 p.m. Advance tickets are $8 adults, $6 children, $12/$8 at the door. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain time.
