Friday-Sunday, Jan. 16-18

The Minneapolis Convention Center will be home to a giant disco party Friday through Sunday, Jan. 16-18.

The Symposium Talent Contest, which started 23 years ago in Minneapolis, holds 10 competitions in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. Performers compete in tap, jazz, ballet, clog dancing and modern dance, among other things.

Dancers will compete for a chance to take part in an annual competition in June at the Rochester Civic Center. The theme this year is "Symposium Fever."
