Because its original run of shows sold out, Town Theatre is extending its performances of White Christmas for another week. Based on the 1954 film starring Bing Crosby, White Christmas follows two Army buddies and Broadway entertainers as they try to save their former commanding officer-turned-innkeeper from bankruptcy. Irving Berlin's iconic melodies—including "It's Cold Outside," "Sisters," and the titular tune—usher in holiday jolliness for kids and adults—all within the comfy confines of the oldest continuously used theatre building in the United States.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum.

Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or cha-cha. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
