Sanspointe Dance Company will present "Creative Catalog," dances inspired by library experiences, on Wednesday, September 24, 5:00 p.m., in the atrium of the Central Library. Admission is free.
From dances that embrace everything from research and the Dewey Decimal system to the energy, imagination and fun found in children's books, the show will celebrate what libraries do for the community and for the imagination. The company’s 30-minute performance will be comprised of four dances with seven dancers and narration. Sanspointe has performed at the Birmingham Public Library and other libraries in the past.
New this year will be a free Master Class for teenagers from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. on September 24. It will be held in the library's second-floor Story Castle. The introductory, contemporary dance class will blend children's favorite library books with works of dance art. It is ideal for ages 12 to 17. Class space is limited to 15 participants. Advance registration may be made at the downtown library's Youth Department. The class is free. Call the Youth Department at 226-3655 for more information.
