West Jordan Branch 10th Anniversary Celebration
Wednesday, June 15
The West Jordan branch is celebrating ten years with presents for you! Dancers and musical performances, raptors, tasty treats, and anniversary crafts await at a birthday bash you don’t want to miss.
The event will include a performance by Viva Mexico Ballet, and an up-close experience with owls, a falcon, and a hawk from Ogden Nature Center.
As tin and aluminum typically commemorate a ten year anniversary, the West Jordan branch will also hold a Utah Food Bank canned food drive June 1–15 to reduce food insecurity in Salt Lake County.
About Performers and Presenters
Viva México Ballet serves children in our community ranging in ages 5-18 years old. Their studio is located in South Jordan, but they perform all over the Salt Lake valley and surrounding areas, like Tooele and Provo. Their main focus is traditional Mexican dances, or folkloric dances—but they also have international numbers in their repertoire. Their dances cover various regions in the country: from the North, to the South, East and West, and of course the very heart of Mexico—JALISCO—which is where the charros are found with their big hats. Viva México Ballet has been bringing smiles to audiences for 12 years, and they always welcome new dancers.
Ogden Nature Center: The Talent of Talons
With the help of three of the Ogden Nature Center’s resident raptors, students will get an introduction to birds of prey and their unique characteristics.
