EUGENE, Ore. — Dancers at Flex Studios have been busy rehearsing for an upcoming performance and the proceeds will help a Eugene nonprofit.
Angela Dunham dances and teaches. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a major in dance and a minor in business. She also earned a Dance Educators of America certification.
“I’ve been dancing my entire life. I was one of those children that my mother didn’t know what to do. She put me into dance and I’ve been dancing ever since,” says Dunham.
Last year, Dunham along with Lindsey Shields, opened Flex Studios. It offers a variety of dance classes for both adults and kids. For all the success they’re experiencing, they want to pay it forward with a community event.
It’s their first annual dance concern to benefit Looking Glass Youth and Family Service. It’s called Feelin’ Knotty, with a nautical theme.
Guest artists will take the stage, along with vintage props and iconic music from the past. The set also includes timeless pictures.
“Each dancer has been assigned an iconic beauty. We did a beautiful photo shoot. These will be projected behind the dancers on the big screen while they do their solos,” says Shields.
Feelin’ Knotty is Saturday, March 22 at the LCC Raggozino Performance Hall. It starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 each.
