The public rehearsals for Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance’s new show, The Elements, have attracted the attention of everyone from tourists and passersbys to Asheville moms groups. “It’s really wonderful because we don’t usually get that much exposure to young people, and I love that aspect of it,” says executive director and choreographer Heather Maloy.
