PSOD was grateful for the opportunity to “give back” to the community on Saturday, March 9th by performing for the residents of Summit Place Senior Campus in Eden Prairie. Nearly 50 Performing Arts students performed “a full recital” including ballet, jazz, tap and Sacred dance for the grateful audience. Miss Sarah (Steichen) and Miss Jenna (Ely) were on hand to help make the performance run smoothly.
Students had the opportunity to visit and mingle with residents during a cookie reception following the performance. The whole area was a buzz with excitement and energy; we were very proud of “our girls” as they demonstrated great maturity and grace when interacting with the residents. Many residents commented on how they loved the tap numbers and wish they could have “heard the taps”; the girls performed their routines on carpet so the fabulous tap-effect was lost but their routines still looked great!
We invited residents to attend PSOD’s next major performance: “Psalm 139: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by God” at Grace Church, Eden Prairie, on Saturday, April 13th at 7pm. We hope to arrange for transportation so interested residents can attend this special production just minutes away!
Enjoy some special memories from our annual visit to Summit Place!
