Seventy-five or so young performers will perform during the hour-long show. There are 16 numbers on the program including “Let it Snow”, “We Need a Little Christmas” and “Dominick the Donkey”.

Jones’ energy is as boundless as that of the children she leads. This year’s production includes dancers between the ages of two and 14, said Jones.

“This is dancing with no barriers,” Jones said. Any ages and all abilities are welcome to join in any of her classes.

“I’ve been doing this 21 years,” she added. The tradition started in Kingfield, where it ran for 16 years. Jones has organized the production in Farmington for the past 6 years.

Jones’ daughter, Abigail Howell as been involved in the annual production for nearly her entire life. “Abby was born in 1998, two days before my second show,” said Jones. “She has been either a dancer or teacher ever since.”

Howell will offer free family portraits following the recital.

The United Way of the Tri-Valley Area will have a giving tree on display. “People can pick tags off the tree to buy gifts for less fortunate people,” organizer and choreographer Susan Jones.

There is no admission to attend the recital, which starts promptly at 4 p.m. Families, friends and community members are all welcome, Jones said.
