Watch youth dancers leap, spin and shimmy in North Bend Block Party performances Saturday.

Performing at 3:30 p.m. on the Main Stage, at North Bend Way and Main Avenue, Cascade Dance Academy’s Senior Company, made up of youths ages 12 to 18, shows off two pieces: “Put on a Happy Face” and “Carrying the Banner.” The Junior Company, made up of dancers ages 10 to 12, performs “Oh So Quiet.”

The academy will also be showcasing some of its up-and-coming dancers, ages 8 to 15, in solos and duets. Performances include jazz, musical theatre, and lyrical dance, and will last about 20 minutes.

“Our students love having the opportunity to perform for the community and look forward to it every year,” says instructor Brittany Jamieson Pulliam.
