All that jazz

The halls of the Smiley Building frequently are alive with the sounds of rhythmic footsteps as students of The Dance Center make their way to classes and dress rehearsals. Dance enthusiasts can indulge in a variety of genres, including jazz, tap, salsa, hip-hop, break dancing and ballet. The Dance Center’s next performance, “New York, New York,” will take place May 15 and 16.
