Allegro Dance Theatre hosts Cooney's theatre arts class

-A A +A

Allegro Dance Theatre recently hosted the class of Wendy Cooney. Cooney’s theatre arts class came and viewed an intermediate-advanced ballet class taught by Kathy Sawyer, retired ballerina from the Louisville Ballet. Cooney’s class watched as dancers warmed up with a barre and then went to work on one of the pieces they will present in their spring recital, Garden Party. The class is being taught the Garland Dance from Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty with choreography by Kathy Sawyer. While dancers were stretching, Carol E. Zagar, director of Allegro Dance Theatre, explained to the class what the dancers had done at the barre, how they were stretching and what the class was about to see with the “Garland Dance”. The ballet GardenParty will contain this choreography, as well as choreography by Dale Brannon, faculty member at Allegro Dance Theatre. It will be presented at 7 p.m. May 25 and 26 at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center and the performance is free.
