This year, for the first time, we have an original painting by Avery Kelly, Art of the Dance, to commemorate SUMMER DANCE CONCERT 2017. The painting will be auctioned off at the Thursday evening Gala. As well, it has been reproduced on a very special poster, suitable for framing, that will be on sale during the performances, while supplies last.
