Twin City Ballet Company is known for their powerful and moving Christmas ballets, and this year’s An Annie Christmas choreographed and staged by Joe Istre and a glorious compilation of dance to everyone’s favorite Christmas hymns and carols choreographed by Leaia Alsup set the tone for a festive Christmas season. The lobby of the Jack Howard Theatre at the Monroe Civic Center was filled with Christmas trees of all sizes and shapes that were auctioned off to the highest bidders during the ballet company’s 6th annual Festival of Trees. Leading the auction was TCBC Board President, resident comedienne and children’s book author, Cindy Foust. During the Festival of Trees, Tommy and Melanie Usrey were honored with a Lifetime Membership to Twin City Ballet for their service to the Arts and for being such loyal supporters of Twin City Ballet during Tommy’s tenure as the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council President and CEO.
