Cooper Center Presenting Dance Tribute to Music Legends
Three months of hard work will come together in the form of the show, “Tribute: An Evening of Dance Celebrating Legends of the Music Industry” at the Cooper Center for Creative Arts, which provides authentic art opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
In the black box theatre, a cast of 15 will dance to songs by music icons, all ending in a big finale that Creative Arts Coordinator Cheyenne Christian reports you don’t want to miss. She also says to stick around after to mingle with the cast.
“They love to talk about their triumphs and get their complements, ” Christian said. “Every show that we do is very different. We did The Elephant Man and Everyman in the past year, so that’s been a heavy undertaking and now we’re doing something that’s a little lighter.”
Christian assured that the show will be family friendly, but mentioned that there will be limited seating. The show will run May 3, 4, and 5 at 7:30 p.m. each night at the Cooper Center. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased by calling the box office at (307)399-9513.
The Cooper Center opened in 2007 and offers an array of classes from visual arts, music dance, theatre, film making, photography and language arts as a division of ARK Regional Services. They produce two theatre shows a year.
