Young Dancers Recital
at TAMIU May 21

The community is invited to attend the annual Young Dancers Program recital at Texas A&M International University's Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall, Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

"The students have been working on a variety of dances that will appeal to a wide variety of  audiences.  The Ballet classes will be performing to music from Disney classics; the Tappers will follow a Country theme and the Spanish dance will include a mix of classical, traditional and new age flair.  There will also be jazz and hip-hop...something for everyone," exclaimed Bede Leyendecker, assitant professor of dance.

The Young Dancer Program is a community-based program that holds classes from September-May, offering children ages two to 11 a combination class including ballet, tap and Spanish dance and Teen/Adult classes in ballet, tap, jazz and Spanish dance. Admission to the event is free of charge, thanks to the support of TAMIU's department of fine and performing arts.
