Where does one find scintillating choreography performed by some of the top ballroom dancers in the world? San Juan Community Theatre, that’s where.

Enchanting story lines, breath-taking lifts and a variety of ballroom dances will grab the spotlight when the Utah Ballroom Dance Company hits the stage Saturday, April 20, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The Utah-based ballroom dance company carries the distinction as the U.S. National Formation Champion in both Latin American and Standard/Ballroom dancing. In its production “Cinemagic”, the company showcases well-known dances and sounds of the silver screen, likes Gene Kelly’s signature performance of “Singin’ in the Rain”.

The Theatre’s business partners for the “Cinemagic” are San Juan Interiors, Waterworks Gallery and Mirabella Skin Care. Tickets: $20 adults, $10 student reserved, $5 RUSH at the door. Info, 378-3210, or www.sjctheatre.org.
