4-H Performing Arts Troupe to perform at State Fair
The South Dakota 4-H Performing Arts Troupe will give several performances at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron, SDSU Extension Youth Development/4-H Specialist Carolyn Clague said.

The Troupe will be performing at the 4-H Stage on Saturday, Sept. 2, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.; at the Freedom Stage, Sunday, Sept. 3, at 12:30 p.m.; and again at the 4-H Stage on Sunday, Sept. 3, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.; and Monday, Labor Day, Sept. 4, at 10 a.m.

The Troupe will perform "Dancin' to the Music," with a lineup that includes songs such as Jail House Rock, Disco Inferno, I Hope You Dance, Boot Scootin' Boogie, I Do Believe, and many others.


The 2006 4-H Performing Arts Troupe consists of 107 youth ages 13-18 from 29 counties in South Dakota. The youth participated in the 4-H Performing Arts Camp in June at Northern State University in Aberdeen.

"The South Dakota 4-H Performing Arts is a theater arts educational program for youth interested in developing skills in drama, music, dance, and technical theater," Clague said. "The Troupe often involves youth who do not have the opportunity to experience the arts, except through the 4-H program, particularly youth from rural areas."
