Three Schools Present Dance and Arts Showcase

Three Knox County magnet schools will host a spring showcase on May 4-6 highlighting each of their unique dance and arts programs.


Students at Austin-East Magnet High School, Vine Middle Magnet and Beaumont Magnet Academy will perform during the three-day event, which will be held in the Austin-East Performing Arts Auditorium at 2800 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.


Programming will begin at 6 p.m. on May 4-5 with a preshow featuring performances by Beaumont Magnet Academy Theater, Vine Chorus and Austin-East Theater and Chorus. The showcase will follow with performances by Beaumont Dance Works, Vine Dance Company and the West African drum and dance group and the Austin-East Dance Company and West African drum and dance group. Light refreshments will be served.


On May 6, programming will start at 7 p.m., but there will be no preshow.


Admission is $5, but there is no charge for children under 4 years old.


Students will be participating in tech rehearsals from 4-7 p.m. on May 1-2 and a dress rehearsal from 4-7 p.m. on May 3. These are open to media interested in shooting b-roll or interviewing students about their participating in the programs.


This showcase is an excellent opportunity for parents to preview the magnet programs available to their students within Knox County Schools. Each of these dance and arts programs are vertically aligned, which allows students to continue their growth in performing arts programs from elementary to high school.
