Event Description: Florida Dance Theatre Wants You! LAKELAND, FL— Florida Dance Theatre wants to get people moving in honor of National Dance Week. Dancers are sought to perform in “Celebrate Dance!,” a free performance at Lake Mirror Promenade. The professional dance company also invites aspiring dancers to take part in a series of workshops May 3-5. Aspiring dancers ages 10 and older are encouraged to submit a DVD of their dance piece of four minutes or less, by April 30 to perform at the main event May 4 at 7 p.m. “It will be a fun event for the whole family,” said Meredith Spresser, immediate past president of Florida Dance Theatre. “It is amazing how much talent we have in our community.” Dancers from Florida Dance Theatre, along with dance instructors from throughout the country will teach a series of classes. There are a total of nine classes ranging in length from an hour to an hour and a half. Price is $100 per person for all nine classes or $20 per class. Class Schedule: May 3, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. May 4, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. May 5, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. “Local dancers are given the opportunity to learn from some of the best dancers in the industry,” said Carol Erkes, Florida Dance Theatre founder. “Anyone looking to refine his or her skills is asked to join.” National Dance Week is about raising awareness of dance and its contributions to society. Thanks to this weeklong observance, dance as an art form is growing – from the popularity of flash mobs to choreographed commercials. “Celebrate Dance!” is another way to show off how important dance is in American culture.
