When: Sat., Jan. 9, 2 & 5 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 10, 1 & 4 p.m. 2016
Maybe your holidays didn't go exactly as you had planned. Perhaps your gifts were disappointing, or perchance you fell prey to a grinchy, unlit strand of lights on your tree, or maybe you had a little too much New Year's Eve fun, if you know what we mean. Make up for all of that this weekend and support local artists at the Center of Creative Arts (524 Trinity Avenue, University City; www.cocastl.org). When COCAdance and the COCA Hip-Hop Crew take the stage for Perpetual Motion, you will be delighted and invigorated by energetic contemporary dance and beat-driven hip-hop moves, performed by COCA students ages ten to eighteen. We're guessing that by the time this future-of-dance showcase is over, you'll be all set up to look forward to the year ahead, rather than backward at your 2015 woes. Your opportunity to hit the reset button on the new year comes at 2 and 5 p.m. Saturday, and at 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday (January 9 and 10); tickets cost $14 to $18.
