Every May, our Spring Recital brings together youth and adult dancers in the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium. Little Movers turn as tiny ballerinas and make way for adult hip-hoppers. The Motion Pacific Youth Company amazes with original choreography. Dancers of all ages and levels showcase tap, jazz, contemporary, ballet, and work by the Dance for Parkinson’s program.
