The “King Kong” score will be brought to life by choreographer Katherine Call and will depict the frightening aspects of obsession and pride and how they can consume what matters most in life.

Jennie Jones has created a piece to “Adagio in G Minor” by Tomaso Albinoni. This dance explores the romantic possibility that Albinoni began creating this masterpiece before his death, and that Giazotto was able to bring to fruition this eerie melody under the guidance of Albinoni’s ghost.

Choreographer Summer Belnap Robertson will perform a duet with Lexie Corbett in a raft boat to the musical score “Jaws,” depicting the fear and emotions brought from within the music and even interacting with guest conductor Rhoden.

Additional choreography by Robertson will also present a dark take on the ebb and flow of love in a remake of television’s “The Bachelor,” danced to Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7 in A Major.”

“This concert is open to people of all ages,” Robertson said. “It’s really a great opportunity to share your love of the performing arts with your children and grandchildren.”

Choreographers and dancers participating are: Summer Belnap Robertson, Katherine Call, Cole Chollet, Lexie Corbett, Krisen Day, Bethany Gee, Jared Fleurant, Bailey Johnson, Jennie Jones, Courtney Pearce, Micadyn Sanders, Jennifer Wadsworth and Rebekah Wainwright.

    Dancing? What? Not in our neighborhoods. We will not have this.

      The Nazi George city council is okay with staged events where people are confined to sitting in their chairs and watching. As long as they just sit like mindless zombies and watch a dance routine, it’s okay.

    I hope they get this approved through Congress…boy I hope Congress is even in session those scum bags are always on vacation. The last thing we need is for the SWAT team to show up and shut this party down. Make all of the children go home and start to issue citations. I hope the Mayor will abolish this law against dancing. Does he have the power? Or do we really have to start writing to our President or protesting in the street like our parents, and their parents did to get things to change. I’m will not be attending the party but my young family members and neighbors might. GO FALCONS!

    Where is the spin and lip service from Jimmie Hughes on this one?

    Don’t you think it’s about time to give it a rest?That’s old embarrassing news your hanging on to. Or you could go to the next City meeting and give them a piece of your mind.
    (Better get the approval from the Mrs. first) before you show your intelligence there.
