Is your little one always moving? A turn of the head, a slide to the shoulders, a flick of the knee, or a point to the toe? Do they try to line up friends and siblings to follow along?

Maybe they’re a born choreographer.

They can glimpse such a future career at “Standing on the Edge,” the Youth Contemporary/Modern Choreography Festival at the Lineage Performing Arts Center.

High schoolers will perform their routines, competing for top prizes, and have their work critiqued by a panel of judges so they can continue to grow in their field.

The semi-finals and finals are this Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are only $10.

LPAC aims to encourage all sorts of art, hosting events such as music performances, theatrical productions, comedy, poetry readings, short film screenings, and an emerging writer series. They even host birthday parties and fundraising events.

Dance classes are offered regularly in beginning ballet, ballet conditioning, jazz, hip-hop, tap, and modern dance. For something completely different, their menu also includes “African Burn,” “Bollywood,” or “Boogie Bootie Ballet.” A creative, thoughtful inclusion are the classes titled “Dancing with Parkinson’s,” “Dancing Through Cancer,” and “Dancing with Downs Syndrome.”
