Now in its ninth year, OceanDance continues with a FREE dance performance and laser light show on Hollywood Beach. This year’s celebration features the Wylliams/Henry Danse Theatre of Kansas City, Mo., spotlighting a collection of repertory works ranging from contemporary classics to the avant garde. This 10-member, multi-cultural ensemble is known for its bold and athletic style, and offers exceptional dance that has been hailed by critics as “captivating,” “exciting,” and “powerful.” Arrive early and don’t forget to bring your beach chair, as this annual event cannot be missed.
On Sunday, Dec. 30, the show starts at 8 p.m., while the Monday, Dec. 31 performance begins at 9:30 p.m. OceanDance 2007 takes place on Hollywood Beach at Johnson Street.

At midnight on the New Year’s Eve, the sky will be aglow with a special laser show and end of year countdown as everyone in the VIP area will receive party favors and a glass of champagne to ring in the New Year.
