On Jan. 31 Foster Dance Studios will present a winter dance concert aimed to melt hearts and tackle important environmental issues in the community. Foster Dance Studios youth ensemble, Foster Dance Company, has been hard at work choreographing “Melt: A Winter Concert” – an hour long performance journey that explores climate change, sustainability and the environment through movement.

The concert will feature 76 dancers performing a roadmap of 12 fluid phrases, each composed of movement with dif-ferent textures and elements relating to the green theme. The soundscape will be an eclectic combination of classics from Stevie Wonder and R&B singer Irma Thomas, as well as hip hop and fresh electronica.

In partnership with the City of Evanston “I Heart Evanston Trees” project, Foster Dance Studios’ “Melt” performances will contribute to making Evanston a greener, healthier and safer community by raising awareness and generating funds for this worthy cause. Attendees will be encouraged to make a donation to the “I Heart Evanston Trees” project at each performance, with each $250 raised representing a new Evanston tree. Donors will be entered into a raffle to win prizes.

Performances are scheduled for 2 and 7 p.m. on Jan. 31 at Nichols Concert Hall in the Music Institute of Chicago, 1490 Chicago Ave. Tickets, at $15 for adults and $10 for students, are available at Foster Dance Studios, 915 Foster Ave., or online at
