The Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts performed its annual “Dance Soup” concert to capacity audiences Jan. 26 and 27 in the Charter Arts performance auditorium. Featuring the choreography, costume design and lighting design of Charter Arts students, the two act performance involves over 80 students in 36 individual numbers. The conceptual designs began last summer according to artistic director of dance Kimberly Maniscalco morphing into auditions as part of the Charter Arts curriculum. Maniscalco said performances are the actual collegiate auditions for seniors. “Dance Soup” is directed by Jennifer Weaver and Peter Wrenn-Meleck was director of production and lighting design.
