Graceful Spirit Ballet opens in Alexandria

Morgan Henegar began taking ballet lessons when she was 4. When she was 6, she told her mother she wanted to teach it someday. It was a dream Morgan held on to until she was able to make happen recently.  Morgan spent Friday and Saturday nights at her newly-opened dance company, Graceful Spirit Ballet, at 7115 U. S. Hwy. 431 in Alexandria, welcoming new students at open house and registration.


Excitement over new festival, other events

We all love the upcoming fall season, especially with its multitude of outdoor events. The new Jacksonville Create Festival will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 19, on and around the square in Jacksonville. The newly created Arts Collective Jacksonville, a group that promotes the arts, is sponsoring the event. The visiting artists are mostly from Jacksonville, Anniston, and Gadsden.
