‘Night Before Christmas’ dances onto iconic Hibbing stage

A Hibbing High School alumnus will bring her dance company to the school’s historic auditorium stage this Saturday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. for a free holiday show based on the classic poem “The Night Before Christmas.”

Danielle Ricci founded the award-winning Borealis Dance company in 2008 in Austin, Texas, before moving it to Minneapolis last year. This free show in the heart of the Mesabi Iron Range was made possible by the Hibbing High School Foundation and Rosy Frost Kirk Fund for the Performing Arts.

The Hibbing High School auditorium seats 1,800, so there should be ample room for all. If you haven’t seen a performance in this space, you really should. It’s easily the finest high school theater in the state, an irreplaceable product of another time. Dani is a very creative choreographer and excellent dancer. She describes the show as ” a sumptuous feast of visual storytelling that will delight children and adults alike. The production is filled with laughter, beautiful sets and costumes, and wonderful holiday music. Audiences will be thrilled with the dancing Sugarplums along with Santa and his tiny reindeer brought to life through the magic of dance.  Bring your entire family to enjoy this unforgettable event.”

So that’s what we’re going to do.
