Tickets will be sold at the box office a half hour prior to each show. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students. Children ages 3 and under will gain free admittance. Orchesis is a dance organization that gives students with a strong desire and talent to dance the opportunity of expressive movement through the art of dance performance. The goal is to educate and strengthen the appreciation of dance as an art form. All dances are choreographed by high school students and allow them an opportunity to participate in leadership roles. Fifty dancers from grades nine through twelve have been preparing since August for the performance. “We have a very talented group of girls this year,” says Orchesis Director Julie Widinski. “Their dedication and hard work has produced a very entertaining show.” The performance is a compilation of various choreography designed as a tribute to musical favorites. Dancers will perform all styles of dance from hip-hop to ballet. Music will include hits from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and today.

Two weeks left for Tinley Park students to spread the love Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest deadline is Feb. 7 Bill Jones, Managing Editor The Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest is off and running. And this year, we are making it as easy as it has ever been to enter. Last week, we announced the return of 22nd Century Media’s annual competition. We provide you with a blank heart. Children fill it with love and creativity. Veterans receive cards right around Valentine’s Day. And a few lucky entrants win prizes, and even more get to see their work in print. We are once again asking children ages 3-12 to get creative by downloading the form from the home page of TinleyJunction.com — or find it on Page 33 of this week’s issue of The Tinley Junction — creating just one outstanding valentine per entrant and sending those valentines our way. Entries must be mailed to or dropped off at 22nd Century Media Southwest Chicago c/o Editor Bill Jones, 11516 W. 183rd St., Unit SW Office Condo #3, Orland Park, IL, 60467. The deadline to submit entries is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7. Publisher 22nd Century Media’s Southwest Chicago staff will review all entries and select winners in each of three age groups — ages 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. The winning entries are to be published in The Tinley Junction’s Feb. 15 edition, along with other favorites, at the editor’s discretion. For this year’s contest, we will be picking first-, second- and third-place entries from each of the three age groups. All three of the 9- to 12-year-old winners are to receive two hours of free bowling for up to six people, including shoe rentals, along with a pizza and pitcher of pop, at Laraway Lanes, 1009 W. Laraway Road in New Lenox. The three 6- to 8-year-old winners will get a multi-use pass for the Splash Park run by the Mokena Community Park District. And the 3- to 5-year-old winning entrants will take home a $5 gift certificate to Dairy Queen, 950 E. 9th St. in Lockport. Winners will be chosen based on creativity and neatness. Entries must use and fit on the form provided. As in past years, 22nd Century Media Southwest Chicago is to team up with an area organization to help distribute the finished valentines forms to veterans.
