First State Dance Academy to perform ‘Mid-Year Dance Concert’ at Milford Senior Center!
The choreography in Michael Jackson’s music video ‘Thriller’ has inspired First State Academy of Dance to include it in their ‘Mid-Year Dance Concert,’ Sunday in Georgetown, DE.
The Mid-Year Dance Concert, which is free to the public, is a very casual performance in which FSAD’s dancers will present short pieces that represent the various styles of dance the academy offers (ballet, hip-hop, pointe, jazz, tap, contemporary and modern).
Each year, FSAD director Michele Xiques allows her advanced students to do a fun showcase piece in the concert, and this year they chose to perform ‘Thriller.’
Her students can’t wait to show off their zombie dance moves.
“I love performing because I can really express myself and show how hard I worked here in class to everyone,” said Katie Fields, an advanced ballet dancer at FSAD. “I just love being on stage and being proud of my performance.”
