When co-owners of Artistic Dance Unlimited Ursula Margolis and Alette Chase chose the title for their spring recital, they had more than music on their minds. “The Beat Goes On” celebrated not only the dancers and their routines, but the studio move into a new facility just down the street from their former home on Gill Street this year.
“We thought, regardless of where we are, the beat goes on,” Margolis said.
What was particularly gratifying to Chase and Margolis was a routine they did in honor of autism awareness. The routine was also done recently at an autism awareness forum in Knoxville. The East Tennessee Chapter of the Autism Society of America presented Chase, who choreographed the dance, with special recognition for studio’s dedication to the cause of autism awareness.
“That was very special,” Margolis said.
Ballet, tap, jazz and lyrical dance were all a part of the recital, which was held at Heritage High School. All 350 students performed during the four shows on May 21, 22 and 23.
