Tanner Dance Studio Program Presents:

Ring Around the Rose

This year as we celebrate the legacy and long-standing history of this treasured arts institution, we want to begin at the very start, where dance as a language begins for us.  Whatever the inspiration, dance is a language, a moving language that creates a beautiful visual image that is fleeting and lingering.  In honor of our 75th anniversary, we are excited to share The Poetry of Dance, a collection of dance and poetry that will fill you up with the joy of creativity.
