About 130 Petersburg youth will be dancing in a winter recital this weekend. Dances will be performed by all age groups, preschool through high school. It’s being put on by the Mitkof Dance Troupe. KFSK’s Angela Denning has more:
Inside the MDT dance studio at Petersburg’s Episcopal Church, little girls are excitedly trying on their dance costumes for the first time.

Dance teacher, Kathleen Boggs, is fitting the group of first graders with their snow owl costumes. The outfits are mainly white and gray felt with long wings. Boggs and other parent volunteers made them by hand.

The snow owl dance is one of 21 dances that will be performed at the recital.
