The same amazing creative team of the sold-out and extended Jazz, Mystery, & Murder at the Gatsby brings us a real bopper! Go back to the 50s and prepare yourself for Buddy Holly Gets a Date! St. George Dance Company leaders Jennie Jones and Sherlynn Davis have no bottom in their well of imagination, and they’re lending their talents to all things 50’s: the Jitterbug, hula hoop, sox hops, poodle skirts, jukeboxes, and Davey Crockett and his coonskin cap!

 

Sherlynn Davis

Sherlynn Davis, Executive Director, has been a part of St. George Dance company since 2008. She took on the role of Executive director in 2013. She has an incredible passion for dance and believes that for a dancer it is essential for them to continue dance throughout their life to be truly fulfilled. She started dancing at 14 and danced through high school and into college. She took an 8 year break thinking she was too “old” and to “busy” to dance, but soon realized that without dance life had lost its savor and committed that no matter what, there is always time for dance. She currently serves as the Chairman of the St. George Arts Commission. She loves the variety of art in St. George, and is dedicated to helping the arts flourish here. She also likes reading, gardening, musical theater, and snowboarding.

 

Jennie Jones

Jennie Jones, Artistic Director, began dancing in Salt Lake City. After performing for a season with Colorado Ballet, she returned to the University of Utah to finish a BFA in Ballet. While performing with Utah Ballet at the University, Jennie continued teaching at the school where she had trained growing up, Children’s Ballet Theater. After graduating, she was a dancer for Contemporary Dance Wyoming while directing the Junior Repertory Company of the school at Dancer’s Workshop, and danced with national companies such as Elisa Monte Dance and Diavolo. She has been on faculty for private studios in Salt Lake City, St. George, Mesa AZ, and at Dixie State University. Most recently, Jennie returned to teaching for Vista Charter School for the Performing Arts where she is creating a play-based early childhood dance curriculum.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students and children.
