(MTN News-HELENA) Kids at Shodair Children’s Hospital in Helena were treated to quite the historical performance on Wednesday morning.

Dozens of girls with the Premiere Dance Company performed, “Dancing through the Decades,” combining history and entertainment.

From the roaring 1920’s to the disco era, kids at Shodair got the chance to witness several forms of dance. In between dances, kids were presented history lessons on what was happening in the world over the decades.

Shodair Children’s Hospital serves thousands of youth across the nation suffering from illness, mental and emotional conditions.

Shealyn McKay, a dancer and Helena High senior, said performing for the children at Shodair is simply an honor.

McKay said, “It was a really great opportunity because this is the first time that we’ve gotten to perform at Shodair but this is something very unique for these kids and we’re really grateful to be here today.”

Susan Anderson, Shodair’s Allied Therapy manager said, “A lot of these kids don’t have opportunities to take dance classes and things like that so we want to make sure that we can expose them to lots of positive leisure interest in the world.”

Premiere Dance Company will be presenting “Dancing through the Decades” at the Myrna Loy Center on March 18th and 19th.
