The Camden Shakespeare Company will present its annual dance show two nights only in the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St./Route 1. This year’s show, “Mozaik,” will take place Friday and Saturday, Aug. 27 and 28 at 7 p.m.

“The show promises to be our biggest and best to date,” said CSC artistic director Chris Wolf.

Swing and Sway from Rockland is involved, as well as the award-winning dancers of Rockport Dance Conservatory. Longtime Midcoast dance instructor Katie Thompson has put together a wonderful talent pool, which will perform several original numbers.

Waldoboro native Jenny Woodman, a National Salsa Champion who now resides in Massachusetts, will be part of this year’s show, dancing with Christian Clayton of Swing & Sway, who is a National Ballroom champion.

Ballet, ballroom, show tunes, hip hop, big production numbers, intense themed routines, touching and sensitive numbers, Bollywood dance plus CSC’s penchant for blending dance genres into one song will create this “Mozaik” of movement.

“Even Michael Jackson will make an appearance. Expect exceptional dance talent with music from the Middle East to the latest hip hop moves, sure to entertain, titillate and delight audiences of all ages,” said Wolf.

“Mozaik” is directed by Wolf and choreographed by Kari Cameron, Katie Thompson, Kea Tesseyman, Sally Leighton and Christian Clayton. Lighting design is by Joe Guala. Ellie Curtis, current CSC president, is the show’s producer and publicist. Josh Ledwith is the organization’s treasurer.

A suggested donation of $10 can be made at the door beginning at 6 p.m., and the house opening shortly thereafter both nights. There are no advanced ticket sales (no tickets at all) and seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
