From silver tap-dancing aliens to dancers perched atop a six-foot wall, such unique routines have consistently ranked among the judges' favorites during this year's competition season of the Dynamic Dance Competition Company, an 18-member troop from April School of Dance in St. Marys.
The group, overseen by artistic director Jennifer Blankenship of Kane, recently concluded their season, during which they brought home a myriad of top-place trophies.
The public is invited to attend the company's showcase on Sunday afternoon at the Elk County Catholic High School auditorium. Admission is free of charge, and beginning at 2 p.m. the audience can view the group's 15 performance pieces.
