BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – More than 100 dancers will perform everything from “All I Want for Christmas is a Hippopotamus” to “Carols of the Bells” as part of Heather’s Dance Studios First holiday show Saturday, Dec. 13.

Studio alum and dance instructor Whitney Stites along with studio owner Heather Hall-Lobley came up with the idea for a holiday program as a fun way to give back to the community. The entire studio staff and its students came together to make it happen.
“Each and every dancer at Heather’s Dance Studio has been working so hard for the chance to perform for their family and friends,” said Heather Hall-Lobley, world champion dancer and owner of the studio.”
“I’m so proud of them and our staff. We can’t wait to share the holiday season with our community.”
Performances to suit every fancy will be presented from classical ballet to hip-hop and even a few toddler favorites. Instructors will also perform, giving their students a chance to see them on stage.
All activities are included in the admission price of $23 for adults and $15 for children through Dec. 12. At the door cost is $25 for adults and $18 for children. Children under 2 are free.
