The Janice Holst School of Dance will present their spring production Saturday with performances at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council.
The first act will be a children's ballet, "Hansel and Gretel," and the second will be a salute to Alaska's 50th anniversary featuring a variety of dance styles, from can-can to hip-hop.
Holst said "Hansel and Gretel" is a perfect way to introduce kids to ballet.
"It's a nice introduction to dance for little children because they'll understand the story and get to see the dancers in their costumes," she said.
The 50th anniversary act will feature dancers of all ages.
During the intermission, the Capital City Celebrations committee will serve cake and selling 50th anniversary merchandise.
Holst has been operating a dance studio in Juneau since 1978. She teaches classes to both children and adults in a range of styles including jazz, tap, ballet and creative movement, and leads all the classes herself.
"I don't know if I'll ever turn in my tutu," she said. "I really love it."
