Description : The 16th Annual Arts Sensation is cruising in for a lively and entertaining evening showcasing local talent for a music and dance spectacular to benefit Cape Fear River Watch. Featured musical group The Port City Trio has been entertaining Wilmington audiences for twenty years. Billed as "The biggest little band in town", this group consists of Kelly Jewell on guitar and lead vocals, Woody Dobson on percussion, Wilson Godwin on bass and Julia Walker Jewell on keyboard. All of the band members sing, often in harmony, to deliver their unique renditions of standards from the Great American Songbook. Mixed with a healthy dose of blues, originals and R&B favorites, the Port City Trio remains a local favorite. The captivating Company “T” Tap Dancers will perform to a classic from Tony Bennet and Lady Gaga, with delightful dance performances by choreographers and dancers from local dance studios including The Dance Cooperative, The Dance Element, The Wilmington School of Ballet and Forward Motion Dance Company, as well as a ballroom dance duet performed by Jennifer Gage and Steve House. Young performers from Snipes Academy of Arts and Design will perform a dance piece choreographed by Jeneen Cleare to music by Coldplay. Feel your senses move with the currents with an enchanting Belly Dance entitled "Taking Flight", performed by Kelly Hawes to music composed and performed live by Perry Smith. Featured are Modern, Jazz, and Classical Ballet dance by choreographers Anne Firmender, Sue Meier, Stella Johnson, Emily Lawler, Tracey Varga, plus a piece from student choreographer Olivia Webb titled "Faking Bright". Cartoon personalities come alive in "Cast of Characters" choreographed by Sue Meier, and the Forward Motion Dance Company presents "To Arrive", danced to live piano music composed and performed by Julia Walker Jewell.
