WILMINGTON >> Company of Muses and Brattleboro School of Dance present a preview performance of the 2016 spring concert, "For You With Love" at the Historic Memorial Hall in Wilmington at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.
Artistic director Jennifer Moyse says "For You With Love" is a collection of dance pieces in varying styles offered as a gift to the audience from the BSD community.
"This year marks the fortieth anniversary of the school's founding. So many of those early students now have their own children studying with us," says Moyse. "We dance with gratitude for the years of support we've received."
Moyse says this preview will only feature pieces by the senior company and will have scaled-down technical elements compared to the full spring concert being presented at the end of the month at New England Youth Theatre in Brattleboro.
Admission is $10 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased for $8 at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2538198. Proceeds go to support the Company of Muses scholarship fund.
