HANCEVILLE, Ala. — Wallace State Community College’s Allegro Dance Theatre will present its annual Spring Dance Showcase on Thursday, March 23 at 7 p.m. in the Betty Leeth Haynes Theatre of Garlan E. Gudger Student Center.
The annual showcase allows Wallace State Dance students to plan, choreograph and design a full dance production as part of their trainings and lessons.
