It is performance season for the Sisters Dance Academy. The dancers will culminate a busy season with two performances over the weekend.

The performance ensemble is set to perform at the upcoming Holiday Showcase at Sisters High School, put on by the Sisters High School Jazz choir on Friday, December 15, at 7 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for the choir program.

The culminating performance of this year will be the annual winter dance recital where all 150 Sisters Dance Academy students will perform. This performance will take place at the Sisters High School auditorium on Saturday, December 16, at 6:30 p.m.

The event will tug on holiday heart strings with the theme All You Need is Love. Tickets can be purchased in the Sisters Dance Academy front office at 625 N. Arrowleaf Trail #107 in the shopping center next to Ray's Food Place, or at the door, $10 for teens and adults, $5 for kids 12 and under.

The fall session has been in full swing, and with 150 dancers training in styles including ballet, contemporary, jazz, tap and hip hop, the dance academy in Sisters is thriving.

The Performance Ensemble is the Sisters Dance Academy dance team. This group of 25 dancers ranges in ages 11 to 17; each had to audition to be a part of this elite group. These dancers train anywhere from four to 10 hours per week in various styles with the common goal to perform for their community and to share their talent and love for dance with others.

In October, the Performance Ensemble performed at one of the Sisters High School varsity football games, getting the crowd going with two fun and upbeat dances.

In November, the ensemble performed at the Tower Theatre in the Central Oregon Dance Showcase, an annual event representing all of the dance studios, companies and ensembles in the area.

In December, the Performance Ensemble was invited to dance at the Festival of Trees at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond. Not only did the dancers have a wonderful experience performing at this magical event, but they also got to enjoy the beautifully decorated trees and the free refreshments and fun activities which included a visit with Santa. The funds raised at the Festival of Trees helps make it possible to provide services to terminally ill people and their families not covered by Medicare or private insurance.

The dance academy will begin its winter/spring session the week of January 8. Classes are free for new students to try. For more information contact Lonnie Liddell at
