WCU students ring in the holidays Rockettes style

Written by 

Karyn Tomczak, director of Western Carolina University’s dance program and a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette, helps WCU dance students prepare for a Rockettes-inspired holiday show to be performed in the Asheville Holiday Parade on Saturday, Nov. 20. “As a Rockette, I danced in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which was hard work, but dancing so close with so many women at once really promoted ‘Rockette pride,’” said Tomczak. “I wanted to give our students a similar experience with the Asheville Holiday Parade, and I hope they feel ‘WCU pride’ for the School of Stage and Screen.” The group, which is scheduled to appear 96th in the parade – not far from Santa – will dance to a one-minute version of “Happy Holidays” from the musical “White Christmas.” The dancers also are expected to make a surprise appearance at one of WCU’s holiday shows.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMonday is the new Saturday. Heading down Frazier Street in Waynesville to BearWaters Brewing Company, one can barely find a place to park on a typical Monday evening. For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
