Monica Kapelar with her Dance Excel dancers were joined by Janet Harris and her Adult Tap group to perform three shows in one afternoon at Pioneer Place, The Meadows (assisted living), and Bulkley Lodge (long-term care facility). The collaboration of both groups brought joy to many who can no longer attend performing arts shows. The performance included excerpts from The Nutcracker and a tap number from the 1940s. All dancers and choreographers volunteered months of rehearsals and costume fittings to bring the show together. “This is just a small way for us to give back to the seniors in our community who have contributed so much throughout their lives,” commented Monica.
