MOSES LAKE — The Dance FX company and the SFX preschool will present “Beauty and the Beast” at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Moses Lake High School theater, 803 E. Sharon Ave.

“The dancers will paint the traditional tale, through song and movement,” wrote Dance FX instructor Toby Black. Principal dancer Kolette Kolste takes the role of Belle, a young woman who rescues her dad from the prison of the mysterious Beast. Now Belle must move to the castle of the Beast. The Beast once was an arrogant young man who has lived under the curse of a woman who sought his help and was pushed aside.

Soloist Alyssa Abregana will play the Beast. “The Beast is a fun character to work on as a dancer, because I normally do lots of princess-style dances. It was fun to be a little rugged and almost evil at times,” she said.

The performance follows the company’s presentation of “The Wizard of Oz” last year. “I like shows that are family-friendly,” Black said.

“There are a lot of surprises, some we have added to build on the story.”

The troupe has been working since September, Black said. “These students have been working on their choreography for months. They not only had to learn their choreography, but character development (as well). I think this show is so magical. It has so many different levels to incorporate the all the students of our company and preschool. I think the kids just love it – they feel like they’re right in the movie.”

Tickets will be available at the door, or can be purchased at the Dance FX website.
