Eighty young dancers ages 3 to 18, students of Michelle McDonald Gotta Dance, will figuratively roar when they present “Lion King: A Theatrical Dance Recital” this weekend.

Scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday, June 15, and 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, in the Half Moon Bay High School auditorium, the production will involve jazz, tap, ballet and African dance, and include student choreography. The cast of characters includes Simba (Anya Skinner,) Nala (India Bolding,) Mufasa and Timon (Kathryn Jug,) Scar and Pumbaa (Eleanor Weiss,) Zazu (Shelly Schabinger,) Rafiki (Emily Fountain-Larsen) and Sarabi (MacKenzie Schuller). Broadway-style costumes were created by the dance school’s teen group, and ensembles include meerkats, zebras, elephants, cheetahs, giraffes, monkeys, night stars, gazelles, a hippo and an ostrich.

Drumming will be provided by local Congolese drumming group Allison Akana, Audry M. Harman, Cindy Heyer, Shirley McClure, Cathy Schultz and Shamalah-Allah Scott, with their teacher Sandor Diabankouezi.

The recital also gives a nod to the dance school’s student teacher program in which dancers India Bolding and Emily Larsen-Fountain assisted McDonald.

Tickets at $15 for adults and $12 for kids 14 and under will be available at the door.

For information call Gotta Dance at 726-1489.

Welcome to the discussion.
