Beck Center Dance Education Presents Bi-Annual Dance Concerts

Beck Center's popular bi-annual dance concerts return this spring to the Mackey Theater. All students from the Dance Education Program at Beck Center participate in two uniquely different dance concerts the first two weekends in June. Tickets are on sale now.

 “Our bi-annual concerts are reflective of the many types of dance that Beck Center offers,” remarked Melanie Szucs, Associate Director of Dance Education. “These performance opportunities also give our students the chance to showcase their classroom efforts and progress by performing on stage in costume and make-up with professional lighting.”

Beck Center’s youngest dance students, ages 2 to 7, perform Dancing Toy Shoppe,” June 3 and 4, where they share their developing talents and create magic in a toy-themed dance concert. Performances are 7 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. “Beck Center prides itself on offering age appropriate instruction in a fun-filled environment,” noted Szucs.

Experienced youth, teen and adult dancers perform "Dancin’ to the Radio the weekend of June 10 and 11 with performances at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday. Travel through the decades as Beck students bring radio hits to life. This concert features students from intro to ballet, ballet, pointe, contemporary, tap, jazz, and hip hop classes.

Tickets for each concert are $12 for adults and seniors, and $10 for children and students and may be purchased online at or by calling Customer Service at 216.521.2540, ext. 10.
