Marana High School's award-winning dance team hosts and performs at the eighth annual Tucson Hip-Hop Show, this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12-13, in the school's auditorium.

The event features some of the most talented dancers in Southern Arizona performing the latest styles of hip-hop, breaking and "popping/locking," a release said. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door.

Tickets can be purchased by contacting coach Jennifer Barton at 520-616-6400, extension 5630, by emailing her at J.P.Barton@maranausd.org, or through any of Marana High School's dancers.

The annual show will have 32 different crews, comprised of about 350 dancers, performing during the two-hour event at the school, which is located at 12000 W. Emigh Road.

"This event is an excellent opportunity for school dance programs, dance studios and individual artists to come together as a community to celebrate the arts through dance," Barton said in a release. "It also provides an excellent opportunity for the audience to show its support for these hard-working and talented young dancers."

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
