Darien Arts Center to hold annual evening of dance

The Darien Arts Center will hold its annual “Evening of Dance” on the weekend of Oct. 20 and 21

An annual evening of dance will be held  at the Darien Arts Center’s (darienarts.org) on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 4 p.m. Celebrating it’s 18th year, the DAC’s ‘Evening of Dance’ will showcase a culmination of performances by the DAC Dance department staff, and the adult and student performance groups that have worked together since 2000.

Under the direction of DAC Dance Director Bonnie Gombos, instructors and students have developed, choreographed and polished performances to feature the versatility of the dancers in a wide variety of dance forms. Performances will encompass classical ballet, modern, contemporary jazz, and ballroom styles, and approximately 30 dancers will perform in the 90-minute show. New this year: dancers have picked their favorite dances from over the years to perform a “best of” show.

‘An Evening of Dance 2018’ will take place at the DAC Weatherstone Studio, behind the Town Hall. Tickets are $15 and reservations are recommended as both shows usually sell out.
