Canyon Crest Academy Envision Dance presents ‘L-O-V-E’


Canyon Crest Academy’s Envision Dance Program presents its fall dance production, “L-O-V-E,” on Dec. 11-12 in the Proscenium Theater at the academy, 5951 Village Center Loop Road.

Tracy Yates, Envision Dance teacher, describes the show, which features 180 student dancers, as focusing on all types of love. “Some pieces are really playful and fun — for example, one of the performances is set to Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s duet, ‘I Can’t Give You Anything But Love’ — and some are moving and serious.”

Yates explained that the show also provides an opportunity for students to try their hand at choreography and “features five pieces by student choreographers who auditioned to have their pieces performed in the show — and they are fabulous!”

A collaborative dance project is also in the works for spring — the Led Zeppelin Tribute will feature a collaboration among CCA students in dance, rock band and choir.

Show times for “L-O-V-E” are at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students ($6 with ASB card) and $15 for nonstudents, and can be purchased by visiting and clicking on the link for the Envision Dance production.
