SynthesisDANCE is coming to Skagway from New York City! This energetic dance performance is Friday, May 6, 7:00 p.m. at the Skagway

School. Admission is $15, $13 for SAC members, $10 for seniors/students and $35 for a family. A free Dance Movement Workshop will also be held Thursday, May 5, at 3 p.m. at the Skagway School. All ages are welcome and no reservations are required.

SynthesisDANCE is more than a company – it is a pure dance experience of strong, vigorously trained, articulate female dance artists. A company balancing a high level of artistry and technique while inspiring thought-provoking performance experiences.

Building on the passion and pulse of jazz dance and bold rebellion of modern contemporary, SynthesisDANCE’s work is diverse, engaging and entertaining. Each piece of the concert whispers, shouts, points to or withholds the truth – welcoming the audience to experience what lies beneath a beautiful line, smile or gesture.

The SAC’s Second Annual May Day Celebration will be on Saturday, April 30, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Seventh Pastures Dedman Stage. Live music by: KennaLane, Nathaniel Leggett, JDot & Jess, Fogatron, Brother Brother Friend, Joe Stephenson, Gann Brewer, Rosco Wuestewald, Krowd Kontrol, The Hot Toddies and more! Watch the amazing DJ Mike Sway-Z MC throughout the evening, while the Emblem Club grills up burgers and hotdogs with all the fixins at the Snack Shack!

SAC will be providing a Beer and Wine Garden featuring Alaskan APA and Pabst Blue Ribbon, Black Box Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc. (IDs are required). SMART Bus will be running shuttles all evening, so be SMART and catch a ride! This event is FREE with drinks and food for purchase but this is also your chance to support SAC by contributing to donation buckets on

hand to help us continue hosting events for our wonderful community!
