ARTS BRIEFS BOOKER HIGH SCHOOL DANCE STUDENTS TO PERFORM NOV. 15-17 The Booker High School Visual and Performing Arts Dance Program will showcase an eclec- tic mix of dance styles during its Fall Dance Performance, Thurs- day through Saturday, Nov. 15-17, at 7 p.m. The shows will be in the school's VPA The- atre at 3201 N. Orange Ave. "Dance Department Chairwoman Melissa Lodhi has moved the de- partment in a direction that focuses on making con- nections between what students learn about the movement of their bod- ies and several core academic classes, in- cluding English, sci- ence and mathemat- ics," a Sarasota County Schools news release says. "The approach has prompted students to strengthen their crit- ical thinking skills as much as they strengthen their bodies as dancers."
