An Evening of Dance


It's May 6, 2004 and we're going to the Don Bagget Theater at Nevada Union High School to watch grand daughter Amanda and her theatrical dance class perform. It's the program's thirteenth annual Evening of Dance. This is our first experience and we're looking forward to it.

The crowd's waiting outside to enter, but Margie bought reserve tickets ahead so that we'd all be together in our appointed seats. She's waiting in the lobby with a bouquet for Amanda following the program.


It's almost time for the Dance to begin...We'll get to watch jazz, modern, ballet and character performances.

The lights dim, and after a brief introduction by the Mistress of Ceremony, the curtain goes up on...

Act I

 Dance performances of Matrix, Dancing In The Streets, Do You Wanna Dance, Vision of Love, Don't Call Me Up, Heartburn (with Amanda), I Love Rock N' Roll, Youth of The Nation, Into the Forest, and Love Stories In The School Gym.



Tim, Brent and Vicky get some refreshments.

Hi Deena...

And how's Timmy tonight?

Cheryl loves to sing along, remembering her song leading days in high school. Well, It's time to return to our seats for...
Act II
The show begins with Copacabana and
Take a Chance On Me.

Then Amanda does her stuff in her favorite Money, Money, Money (Mamma Mia) performance. It's the theme song for this story.

Come on! Sing along...
"Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world
All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world..."

Next is There There, followed by Beauty and the Beast. "Once upon a time, in a far away land, a Prince lived in a shining castle..."

The Prince was proud and arrogant, so a witch cast a spell on him and turned him into an ugly beast. Eventually his heart changes as he falls in love with Belle. After some difficulties she declares her love for him and he and the castle are transformed.
This concluded the evenings dance program. I must say that all those who had anything to do with this production deserves great accolades. It was marvelous and I know they worked very hard to make it such a success. (Too bad the photographer didn't do a better job.)
Megan, Katie and Amanda's smiles brighten the foyer as we're leaving. It's been an evening to remember.
 Thank you all...
