Grand Junction Events For Weekend of November 22-24
It's the weekend before Thanksgiving, and it may seem a little bit slow since we're in the time prior to the Christmas rush. However, there are events scheduled this weekend that might be of interest.
The play is based on the Hans Christian Anderson story and the Disney film “The Little Mermaid.” Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $35 for a family pack (5 people).
The event is expected to feature a variety of dance styles from Modern and Aerial Dance to Hip Hop and Contemporary. “Fall for Dance” will feature CMU faculty and nationally-renowned guest choreographers along with selected student choreographers. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $6 for students.
Proceeds from this event will benefit The Art Guild, which in turn supports The Art Center.
