West Michigan Wednesday: “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” at Muskegon Civic Theatre

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

West Michigan Wednesday

This weekend, “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” opens at Muskegon Civic Theatre. This is their annual black box show and seating will be on the stage at the Frauenthal theatre.

I LOVE black box seating, it is such an intimate setting where you can feel every emotion and see every nuance on stage. You really feel like a fly on the wall! This is a two person show and they have an amazing cast. I cannot wait to see it!


Here is the blurb from the website: “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks is a touching and human comedy about a formidable retired woman, Lily Harrison, who hires an acerbic dance instructor, Michael Minetti, to give her private dance lessons —one per week for six weeks— in her gulf-front condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. What begins as an antagonistic relationship blossoms into an intimate friendship as these two people from very different backgrounds reveal their secrets, fears, and joys while dancing the Swing, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, and Contemporary Dance. Michael and Lily learn to overcome their outward differences and discover an unlikely but profound connection. By the final lesson, Lily shares with Michael her most closely guarded secret and he shares with her his greatest gifts, his loyalty and compassion. A comedy with music and dance, the play also addresses the serious issues of ageism and intolerance.”

This show will run this weekend (Janurary 16, 17, 18) and next (January 22, 23, 24). Buy your tickets here!
