Spring dance recital steps out Sunday

Tracy Dance Studio students will present their Spring recital Sunday, March, 19, at 1 p.m. on the Tracy Area High School stage.
Some 150 students from Tracy, Slayton, Walnut Grove, Balaton, Garvin, Westbrook., Currie, Lake Wilson, Russell, and Milroy will present routines in tap, tumbling, jazz and ballet and pointe.
The recital’s theme,  “Stand in the Light,” encourages dancers to “always be true to yourself.” Seniors Kelsey Nordsiden and Jessica Meyer will perform a lyrical dance to “Stand in the Light.”
“It’s a beautiful song and the girls really dance with their heart,” comments instructor Vicki Nilius. The teacher adds that the recital will also feature “some fun numbers that will be very entertaining including a swing dance routine to Chicken Fried and our always entertaining preschoolers.”
Other teachers at the studio are Jen Kainz, Heather Kamrud Rice, Sheila Fultz, Alyson Birt, Kelly Hanson, Ashley Vue and Audrey LaVoy.
