Students show their moves as they experience first-hand the lessons they have learned in class.
Quick, quick, slow. Those are the steps some L’Anse Creuse North students learned as they took tango lessons as part of their Spanish III class. “It’s a great opportunity for students to experience first-hand some of the stuff we’ve been talking about,” Spanish teacher Elaine Siegle said on a video posted on the school district’s YouTube channel.

The Macomb Ballet Company presents "The Wizard of Oz" in four performances Friday and Saturday at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts in Clinton Township.
Just call M-59 the Yellow Brick Road and follow it this weekend to the Macomb Ballet Company’s production of The Wizard of Oz at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts. Although the ballet is based on L. Frank Baum’s original children’s novel and will use a classical score rather than the famed movie soundtrack, MBC Artistic Director Amber Megna-Michalik promises that her company’s production will be every bit as magical as the iconic 1939 film. “This show will appeal to all ages,” Megna-Michalik said. “This is a well-known and well-loved story with a classical ballet twist. The costumes, props and sets are unbelievable and rival any Broadway production. Our volunteers have spent countless hours working on all of the small details that …

Summer auditions for the Macomb Ballet Company will be held Saturday, Aug. 13 and Wednesday, Aug. 31. There is no residency requirement for membership, although some formal training is required.
There are dance recitals, and then there is the Macomb Ballet Company. Founded by Ann Parsley in 1983, the MBC is a pre-professional group developed to allow serious ballet students between the ages of 8 and 25 to perform full-length ballets on stage. “It’s not competitive. It’s just to perform,” said Lori Henderson, president of the MBC board of directors. “It is a big commitment, because you have to show up for all your rehearsals. They expect professional ballet and that is what’s put on.” Two full-length ballets are performed each year, with performances of The Nutcracker every December, and classical ballets such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia that take the stage in the spring. Open auditions for the company are held …
