164 Petersburg dancers are performing this week in a winter dance recital called “Game Night”. It will be the first time the show times are split by age and the first recital for one new teacher at MDT Studios. KFSK’s Angela Denning reports:

The recital “Game Night” will run Thursday through Saturday at the Wright Auditorium with the youngest dancers (toddlers through kindergartens) performing Thursday at 6 p.m. That will be donations at the door and the show will last about 30 minutes. The other dancers (first grade and up) will perform Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at Lee’s Clothing. Those shows will last about two hours. Sunday’s show for all dancers starts at 2 p.m. and those tickets are also at Lee’s.
