The Shoestring Dance and Theater program is a collaborative relationship between Beverly Farm and Left Bank Dance studio in Alton, IL.

“Left Bank Dance has hit the jackpot! As is often the case, when you seek to bless you are doubly blessed in return. That’s certainly how we feel about our community service project, Shoestring Dance and Theatre, with residents from Beverly Farm,” said Hilary Harper-Wilcoxen.

Beverly Farm participants of the Shoestring Dance and Theater program were able to create an original piece to be performed with assistance of Left Bank Dance instructors Hilary Harper-Wilcoxen and Chrissy Steele along with a Principia College student.
