The Kirkland Fine Arts Center at Millikin University in Decatur is the place to go for music, dance, and theatrical productions. It also hosts a Performing Arts Series each season. The current 2021-22 series is in full swing, and you can still catch some performances. Check out what’s on the horizon at the Kirkland Fine Arts Center.
STOMP – Feb. 26 at 7:30 P.M.
The Performing Arts Series is ramping up in 2022, with a performance of STOMP on Feb. 26. The tickets range from $35-$55, and that’s a small price to pay for such an enthralling performance. STOMP provides a blend of theatrics, music, and dance, and the performers use various props, such as garbage cans and brooms, to increase the intensity. STOMP is quite a sensation, and performances tend to sell out. Thus, if you want to see it in person, secure your tickets soon while they’re still available.
Velocity Irish Dance – Mar. 25 at 7:30 P.M.
You can keep the fun going by getting tickets for the Velocity Irish Dance performance. These tickets are a bit more affordable, ranging from $15-$35, but don’t let the lower price make you think that you won’t be in for a treat. Two dancers and some musicians will take you through the history of Irish dance, so you can see how it’s evolved over the years. You’ll even get a peek into the future of Irish dance during the performance. The dancers and musicians are energetic and talented, and they’ll blow you away. In fact, it’s so impressive that you might find yourself seeking out Irish dancing lessons so you can partake in the exciting tradition.
