Family Museum dancers show their holiday spirit


The holiday season is on its way, and the Family Museum dance company shared its Christmas spirit with a Polar Express themed dance performance at Winterfest Dec. 3. The show consisted of three dances, telling the story through various styles like ballet and tap.

Winterfest is a holiday event put on by the Family Museum, where guests can make crafts, meet Santa, and watch the dance company perform. The dancers started working on the show in October.

Junior Jordan Bayles performed in a tap piece to the song “Hot Chocolate” used in the movie.

“I really liked the theme of the show; the ‘Polar Express’ was one of my favorite Christmas movies when I was a kid so it is extra special and exciting to be performing it,” Bayles said.

Seniors Emily Kidwell and Ashley Bodkin also danced in the show.
