This format gave fun roles to dancers of all ability levels. The little ones made adorable kittens, hedgehogs and oysters, the middle ones were graceful flowers, feisty chess pieces and more — and the older dancers were impressive as Alice (Emily McWethy) The Crow (Marissa Beatty) The White Queen (Micaela McWethy) Jabberwock/Caterpillar/Butterfly (Katherine Knox) and the Red Queen (Kaleel Van Voorhees). I especially liked Katherine’s creative, modern-dance contortions, and Kaleel’s sassy-Queen attitude.
The whole package was well done, with a wide variety of music and lots of imagination. There was even a tap number “dance off” between the Red and White Queens.
The show repeats tomorrow (Saturday) at 2pm at the Hannah Center. $10 admission.
