Dancers take Sisters to the North Pole

With the theme "To the North Pole," dancers from age 3 to adults held a packed house rapt at Sisters High School in two performances on Saturday, December 16.

Some 250 dancers performed in styles of hip-hop, ballet, tap, jazz, and contemporary around Christmas and winter themes.

Sisters Dance Academy owner and director Lonnie Liddell introduced the performances, making special note of the seniors who were performing in their last recital with the academy. Hundreds of Sisters youth have danced in the annual event over the years, many of them starting as small children and growing up in dance.

Sisters Dance Academy has nine teachers on staff, working in the full range of styles across a wide range of ages.

The Winter Recital is an enormous production, featuring a matinee and an evening performance, each of which filled the Sisters High School auditorium near capacity with family members and people from the community, who enjoyed an impressive display of talent and holiday spirit.
