Rochester Dance Company:

Rochester Dance Company

April 18 – 19, 2015

Time: April 18 at 6PM and April 19 at 2PM

wpeterson@rochesterdancecompany.org | 507-722-1036

Byron Middle School Auditorium

601 4th St NW
Byron, MN 55920

Details: Rochester Dance Company presents a dance featuring scenes that include everyone’s favorite Fairies and Princesses of the ballet:

The King and Queen have invited all the Fairies to the christening of the new born Princess Aurora. Led by the Lilac Fairy, they each bring a special gift to bestow upon the young princess.

Fairies of the forest are having a picnic on a The Midsummer’s Eve. Who will attend?

The Princesses have come from all the neighboring Kingdoms to dance for the Prince. Which one will he choose to be his bride? They are all as elegant as they are beautiful, but alas, the Prince is in love with the Swan Queen.

Cinderella has been left alone while her Step Mother and Step Sisters have gone to the Royal Ball. With only mice to keep her company she imagines herself at the Ball. Dancing with a broom is not quite the same as dancing with a Prince, but the Fairy Godmother steps in to help her.

A Finale to the music from Frozen will cap off the evening and leave you wanting to dance all the way home! This show is perfect for fans of fairies and princesses of all ages!

Details: Civic Live: Alison Scott
Apr 25 at 7:30pm
Remember her soulful voice... Alison Scott will be back at the Civic in spring!

Alison Scott is the strongest new voice to come out of Minneapolis in many years and her soulful, organic sound has quietly built a very large and loyal following.
While staying indier than indie and completely ignoring the hipster rulebook, through word of mouth with very little radio or media hype, Alison is making the kind of soul music that music fans love.
True music lovers have always responded to an amazing voice singing great songs, and they always will- from Aretha to Adele, this is timeless music that transcends style and fashion, something for the silent majority of listeners who aren’t interested in fluffy pop OR the trendy flavor of the month.
