You’ve heard 1,000 times by now that Christmas and Thanksgiving are close together this year. If you’re feeling more like Grinch than Santa, St. Augustine has the perfect event to help you get into the season… the St. Augustine Winter Spectacular.
“We are so excited to be presenting a brand-new holiday production to St. Johns County residents and visitors over Thanksgiving weekend this year,” The Dance Company director Stephanie Burkhardt shared. And they’re excited to use a portion of proceeds to fund their “Everyone Dances” tuition assistance fund.
My hubby’s Aunt Jeanne was a Rockette so I was excited to learn that an alumna of The Dance Company who has been a Radio City Rockette came back to teach kick-line dances! I can’t wait to share this experience with the girls and then call Aunt Jeanne to hear about that time in her life.
Family connections are on everyone’s mind here at the holidays and this is a perfect way for me to connect with our girls and then with their great great aunt!
I know Lauren’s favorite performers will be the ballerinas. I love watching all the high-kick dancers’ legs in sync and I bet little Georgia will be dazzled by the acrobats and sparkling costumes. We may even see some faces we know on stage- The Dance Company’s elite Performance Ensemble comprises the majority of cast members as well as other dancers and performers who auditioned for roles.
Mark your calendar for the Saturday or Sunday after Thanksgiving! See you there!
