Peru Negro was a stirring performance, not just for the athleticism and cultural depth, but because the dancers showed the audience the heartfelt national pride they feel for their country. After the show, it was hard to find a dry eye in the audience! They brought out the Peruvian national flag amid a standing ovation and continuing encores that brought chills to your skin. It was truly an uplifting event. (If you were there, I know you felt it, too!)
The show sponsors, Moscow Hotel & Garden Lounge, and NWPR have made a great impact with Festival Dance. Moscow Hotel & Garden Lounge was Festival Dance's very first corporate sponsor. We are so thankful to them for their generous and ongoing support. Also, I bet you heard about the performance on NWPR! Lots of people let me know that they heard about our event from the radio.

The school show the following day brought at least 50 students up on the stage to dance with the artists! It was fantastic! (See picture.)

Hey- coming next are our spring recitals! Check with our website to attend one of our four spring recitals. The theme is "Movies, Musicals, and Magic!" I know I sound cheesy when I say this- but it really is magical to see the dancers on stage - entrancing the audience. It is a form of magic.

Yours in dance.........
