The 150 students in the University of Rhode Island Dance Company have been honing their tap, jazz, ballet and hip-hop skills for 10 weeks and now they are ready for their big semester-ending show.

They will perform Anatomy of a Dancer, Sunday, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. in Edwards Auditorium. The student club is supporting Children’s Friend and Services, and is asking patrons to bring a new toy for admission. Admission for those who do not bring a toy is $5 and $3 for students.

“We wanted to do something for charity this year because times are so hard,” said Kim Saccoia, the president and an instructor with the club.
