SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement’s (SAFE) Southern Dance and Performing Arts Company (SDPAC) has announced the cast for their 4th annual holiday ballet titled “Christmas Angels.”
“Christmas Angels,” choreographed by Jeanna Sumners, is an inspiring ballet that gives the audience an outside look at the enchantment and excitement of Christmas which quickly gives way to a deeper and more purposeful reason to celebrate the most anticipated holiday of the year.
