Cooper-Young dance school, Cordova High to present dance concert at Kroc Center

The first ever collaboration of the arts between Cooper-Young’s Ballet On Wheels Dance School & Company and Cordova High School Orchestra will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 22, at the Kroc Center, 800 E. Parkway South.

The concert, sponsored by the Kroc Center, will feature live musical pieces such as “Lebedike Honga,” “Rolling in the Deep,” “Soul Man” and a unique montage representing several Mother Goose Tales written by Charles Perrault that are sure to be an audience favorite.
