Inner Sun by Koresh Dance Company will take the stage of the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center Saturday, January 26 after teaching Master Dance Classes at Clarksburg area studios. Members of the Koresh Dance Company will be traveling to 5th Street Center for Dance in Fairmont, WV, Friday, January 25 and Cadalzo Contemporary Dance Studio, Saturday, January 26.
Clarksburg City Manager, Martin Howe, explains how Koresh Dance Company being integrated into the community is an example of the New Market Tax Credits at work. “Exemplifying the rationale of CaHec and PIFS support of New Market Tax Credits allocated to the RGPAC project, the educational component and outreach was a tremendous selling point for us.”
Educational components, such as dance classes, were a specification in the grant that was received to bring Koresh Dance Company to the RGPAC. The RGPAC immediately began reaching out to all dance studios in the Clarksburg area, and received immediate feedback from Cadalzo Contemporary Dance Studio, and Koresh Dance Company Assistant Artistic Director, Melissa Rector, an area native, had ties to the 5th Street Center for Dance, and was able to include them in the Master Classes.
RGPAC Executive Director, Ryan Tolley explained this is just one of the great programs offered at the RGPAC. “This is a prime example of the greatest thing offered at the RGPAC. Not only does this bring an awesome event, with great entertainment, but being able to interact with patrons and the youth expands the horizons and education of the arts to the community”.
The RGPAC also offered an educational performance by Koresh Dance Company for local schools and senior citizen’s in the Clarksburg community on Friday, January 25.
For those interested participating in Koresh Dance Company’s Master Class at Cadalzo Contemporary Dance Studio it will take place at Cadalzo Contemporary Dance Studio at 10:30 a.m. for dancers 12 years of age and up, with the cost being $5. Cadalzo Contemporary Dance Studio is located at 354 West Main Street, Clarksburg.
The Inner Sun by Koresh Dance Company will be performing at 7:30 Saturday, January 26 at the RGPAC. Tickets can still be purchased by visiting the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center’s website or by calling (855)773-6283.
