KODIAK — Most Kodiakans need an airplane to fly.

For the performers in Saturday night's True Colors dance concert, the stage was their runway as they performed leaps, spins and twirls. Even if they never left their feet, their heads were among the clouds as they showed off talents learned or sharpened during a year of study under instructor Sarah Nugent.

The show began with a full stage performance by every dancer in the show, then switched to individual numbers as dance classes, the high school dance team and individual seniors.

A capacity crowd watched the fast-paced show, which featured 35 acts during its two-hour run.

Cheers and cries of appreciation from the audience brought smiles to the faces of some dancers, but they never faltered in their performances.

Backstage, dancers went through their paces, getting pep talks, a last-minute massage or one final practice. Some appeared nervous, but the minute they stepped on stage, that disappeared and they showed their true colors.
