The Performing Arts Academy will perform “On Broadway” at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb.

“On Broadway” will transport audience members to the bright lights of New York City while students perform original choreography to the sounds of familiar classics such as “The Sound of Music,” “Cats,” “Sweet Charity,” “Hairspray” and many more. Costumes and lighting will set the mood for this entertaining performance.

Dancers from the competition team will perform their pieces as well. The competition team consists of eight dancers from the school ranging in age from 8 to 16. The dancers will perform a variety of genres including jazz, lyrical and contemporary. The team did exceptionally well for their first season, taking home several overall high score placements and special awards.

Tickets for “On Broadway” cost $18.50 and are available at www.egyptiantheatre.org.

The Performing Arts Academy opened 10 years ago in DeKalb County and added a second location in Rochelle in 2010. The school concentrates on ballet technique, but offers classes in jazz, tap, contemporary, Pilates and now aerial dance.
