"Dance With Somebody" for Sunday in My City

.
.
In my town, "the dance" recital is a hot ticket.

HOT.
.
.
People stand in line to get tickets and save seats down near the front.

"Johnny-Come-Latelies" have to sit in the back or the balcony.
.
.

On a crisp, cold, Saturday afternoon the town gathered in the PAC, Performing Arts Center, for the January recital of 2013.
.
.
I passed down this spectacular hallway in the PAC - - -
.

On my way to the 2 o'clock performance.
.
.
For me, Tracie and Kayla were the star performers.
.
.
The house lights went down.

The "runway" lights on the stairs - - -
.
.
Drew my eyes toward the stage which was ready and waiting for the dancers.
.
.
First there was some Havana Brown, Enrique Iglesias, and Jennifer Lopez.
.

Glow sticks and gasoline cans were used as props.  ("Gasolina" was one of the songs)


Next we remembered Whitney.
.
.
Silhouettes made the transitions between numbers.
.

Then we were treated to Alice in Wonderland.
.
.
The Red Queen was terrifying.
.
.
The Mad Hatter was mad.
.
.
The battle between the minions of the Red and White Queen was fierce.
.
.
The minions made up just in time for curtain call.

Come again in the spring, please!

One quick Fishserhubby tale about the dance recitals in this town:

Last spring, we had tickets for the recital.  Fisherhubby, not realizing what a BIG DEAL it was in this town, mentioned to his nurses at the ER that we were going to the recital.

They asked what our seat numbers were.  

"OH!!!"  said they, "SO IT WAS YOU WHO GOT OUR SEATS DOWN FRONT!!!!!   WE HAVE TO SIT IN THE BALCONY BECAUSE OF YOU!"

Don't worry, they were joking - - - kinda.

We didn't give up our coveted seats for them.


And that's what's been happening in OUR city, what's up in yours?

You captured the excitement of the recital so well, gorgeous set of photos this week. I can see why the performance is a hot ticket.

I am envious. I felt like I was right there in the front, not the balcony. Great shots.

Looks like it was a great performance! I really like the idea of the silhouettes between numbers. The Red Queen looks fierce!

I also had a great time yesterday watching the girls. It makes me reminisce about when Brittny danced. Alice in wonderland was my favorite. Great job Keetha on the pics and comments.

I absolutely love dance recitals. You've got such a grand set of photos, Keetha! Once dance program I attended was so fantastic I forgot to take a single photo and felt quite stupid later. We had such great seats too! Sigh.

Looks like a fab time!
