Local dancers wow audiences

The Cannon Arts Dance recital received rave reviews this year by honoring local veterans with its USO Show held at the Arts Center of Cannon County. Over 25 dancers from Warren County chose to honor the World War II era of the USO and the generation it served with a variety of memorable songs such as “Rosie the Riveter,” “Tuxedo Junction” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”The show's format was comprised of authentic letters from a World War II Army private, narrated by instructor Brad McCrary. Interspersed throughout the show were historical narrations from Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and others, provided by the theater arts class at Warren County High School.Over 50 dancers ages 3 to adult tapped, twirled, and clogged their way through the show, offering ballet, tap, jazz, and clogging pieces.
