For Natalee Cooney and the other five dancers in this year’s “A Beef & Boards Christmas,” the program will move at a dizzying pace.
One moment, they’ll be dancing Santas. The next, they’ll be Chicago-style tap dancers or a jazz ensemble. At one point, Cooney will dress as a giant, frolicking chipmunk.
The Greenwood native will be a featured dancer in this year’s “A Beef & Boards Christmas,” an annual holiday extravaganza at the Indianapolis dinner theater. The live show features a living nativity, a special salute to the military and a variety of tunes, from the poignancy of “Silent Night” to the tongue-in-cheek “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.”
