Although this writer doesn’t know the difference between a rumba and a tango, I gladly give props to anyone that is willing to give dancing a try — especially the dancers participating in Work it Out: Dance Narratives and Fantasies. Northwest Vista College’s multi-generational dance theater has teamed up with citizens in the Academy of Lifelong Learning — a weekly program for seniors that provides simulation, enrichment, and socializing — to create this unique project.

Program coordinator Jayne King set out to create a way for mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and sisters to share and celebrate their love for dance. King arranged for the students in her dance composition course to meet with women in the ALL seniors group on a regular basis to share memories, stories, and dreams.

Live dancers will be accompanied by a large-scale video montage of interviews with the women in the project, images from family albums, and footage from rehearsals. Check out the performance this Saturday at the Watson Center for the Performing Arts at St. Philip’s College at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
