ALA to present 12th annual 'Spirit of Christmas'

American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork will present a concert titled "Spirit of Christmas" Dec. 1, 2 and 5 at 7 p.m. There will be preshow entertainment in the school rotunda before the concert presented by the various ALA choirs.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and $35 per family with an added discount of $5 for those who bring five cans of food to donate.

It’s hard to believe that Rick Lunt and American Leadership Academy have been putting on these wonderful Christmas concerts for 12 years now. Maybe they should do a number called “The Twelve Years of Christmas.” “As a matter of fact,” Lunt said with a chuckle, “we actually are finishing off the night with the ALA version of 'The 12 Days of Christmas.'”

The evening will include performances by ALA's ballroom dance company; men's, women's and show choirs; Dance Company; drama and theater students; drum line; hip-hop company; and symphony orchestra.

With Elaine Hansen, Sandra Millet and Larry Blackburn adding their professional touches, this concert promises to be a visual spectacle as well. Rick Robinson consistently produces nationally ranked dance performances and the drumline and symphony come under the experienced direction of Dustin Grady and Peggy Haynes.

On behalf of all the departments showcasing their talent, Lunt guaranteed the entertainment will be worth the price of admission. “We can promise this will be just the kick-start you need to fill your heart with joy this Christmas season and to encourage you to focus on what matters most.”
