WVWC Dance to host fundraiser dance show on April 2

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Wesleyan dance team will be holding their first annual fundraiser dance show, “Spotlight,” on Saturday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts.

The Spotlight production will be fully produced and will feature all the Bobcat Dancers’ game day routines from the 2021-22 season, graduate solo routines, a performance by head coach Lesa Dencklau and the debut of the dance team’s competitive nationals routines. The show will also feature guest performances from The Augusta Youth Ballet / The Dance Factory in Buckhannon, RM Productions in South Charleston and Altered Productions Institute for Creative Arts in Clarksburg.

Tickets can be purchased at the door with cash only ($5 for adults, $3 for students/youth and $1 with a WVWC ID). Baked goods/dessert items and WVWC dance team apparel will be available for purchase at intermission.

The WVWC dance team is in its inaugural season of competition and is composed of 14 young women from various parts of West Virginia and surrounding states. The Bobcat dance team earned a superior rating during their camp evaluation and the opportunity to attend the National Dance Alliance Collegiate Cheer and Dance National Championships in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The team will compete versus 10 other Division II teams from around the country in the team performance category, where dancers must present jazz, pom and hip-hop styles in one routine. The dance team also qualified for the hip-hop category, where they will square off versus nine Division II teams.

The West Virginia Wesleyan dance team would like to thank the individuals and businesses who participated in their sponsorship program that will be recognized during the concert. Please join them and their guests for an exciting and entertaining evening of dance.
