Five years ago, Vashon Center for Dance launched a stand-alone performance of unique works by young island dancers and choreographers. Called “Original Works,” the production has gained notoriety as a vibrant showcase for Vashon’s youth performing artists to express their creative concepts and choreography for contemporary, modern, tap, ballet and hip- hop dances.

This year, “Original Works” will open at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Kay White Hall.

Tickets are sold at vashoncenterforthearts.org and Vashon Center for the Arts.
