Dancing, a family affair
Placeholder Image

 It's not every day that four members of one family participate in one dance recital, but the Lescarini family of McMinnville is the exception to the rule.
As Alexandria and Elizabeth Lescarini tapped and twirled their way across the stage, youngest sister, Catherine, has wistfully watched from the sidelines, longing for the day when it would be her turn.
That day is finally here and all three sisters will be performing this weekend in the Cannon Arts Dance Studio's USO show at the Arts Center of Cannon County. Not to be outdone, mom Kelly has dusted off her tap shoes and will be joining the girls on stage. The recital will be presented Saturday with show times at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
 This year The Cannon Arts Dance Studio recital is in the form of a USO show paying tribute to the World War II era. Letters from "the greatest generation" will serve as a framework featuring hit parade numbers like “Tuxedo Junction” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”
 Over 50 dancers ranging in age from 3 to adult will perform in a variety of dance genres including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and clogging. In addition to the general public, all veterans are invited to this patriotic salute at a reduced rate. They will be honored at the close of each show.
 Tickets are on sale online at or at the door the day of the recital. For more information, please call Cannon Arts Dance Studio at 615-563-9122 or “like” Cannon Arts Dance Studio on Facebook (do not call the Arts Center).
