Children who attend the Eastern Illinois University Pink Panthers’ dance clinic will have the opportunity to learn a new dance and perform it at halftime of an EIU basketball game.
The Little Pink Panthers Clinic, for children from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 4-12), is set for Saturday, Jan. 26, in the EIU Student Recreation Center.
The first session, for ages 4-7, will meet from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. to learn the routine, which they will perform at halftime of the 5 p.m. women’s basketball game that evening.
The second session, for ages 8-12, will meet from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Their performance will take place during halftime of the 7:15 p.m. men’s basketball game that evening.
Families with children in both age groups may request that the children be included the same group.
The registration cost is $20 per child (or $15 if made by Friday, Jan. 19). The fee includes a Pink Panther T-shirt that must be worn during the performance, dance instruction, admission into the basketball game, and a Pink Panther poster.
DVD’s of the event are to be available for purchase on the day of the performance.
More details on the clinic, including a registration form, may be found on the Pink Panthers Web site at http://www.eiu.edu/pinkpan.
