In the next month, the Grand Valley hosts a number of dance performances in a variety of genres, from Colorado Mesa University’s eclectic Fall for Dance concert on Nov. 21–22, to the traveling “So You Think You Can Dance” performances Dec. 18 at Avalon Theatre.
In between, you can enjoy the Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” Dec. 11 at Avalon Theatre and “The Nutcracker” from the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra on Dec. 12–13 with guests Yumelia Garcia and Mauro Villanueva of Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet.
In addition, on Dec. 13, La Puerta Dance Studio in downtown Grand Junction stages its 2014 Winter Showcase featuring ballroom performances from instructors and students in a format like TV show “Dancing with the Stars” but without the judges.
With so many styles of dance, it is easy to confuse their nuances. In an effort to help you better recognized some of the various dance styles, dancers at area studios demonstrated and talked about dance for this dance primer and for a video at GJSentinel.com/photos_video.
