A near capacity crowd of family and friends filled the Town Hall to watch dancers from tots to teens.
Rhythm and Grace Dance Studio presented this year’s annual dance revue titled “Share the Love” on Feb. 1.
The students performed 17 numbers — from tap to ballet to hip hop — to the music of songs loosely associated with love.
“Most of the songs deal with different kinds of love,” said Wendy Yates, dance instructor and studio owner.
During last Wednesday night’s performance, Yates said that one of the ways the dancers show their love is by sponsoring a young girl named Anna, from Guatemala, through the Feed the Hungry program.
The dance studio caters to all ages — from toddlers to adults — and currently has about 50 students. Classes are held in the former Ayoob’s and Main Street Styles building.
