“Shop ’Til You Drop” spring dance recital is big hit at Trinity Valley Community College

ATHENS–The dancers from the Dance Connection in Mabank presented a whimsical spring dance recital at Trinity Valley Community College auditorium Sunday.
Dancers, ranging in age from 2 years old to 60-plus, presented a variety of dance numbers, as dance director Leslie Dare cruised the stores and shops of Cedar Creek Lake in a red convertible.
Renditions such as “She Wore an Itsy-Bitsy, Teeny-Weeny, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” purchased from Bealls, and a visit to Power Sports Plus because we were “Born To Be Wild,” were both cute and entertaining.
The youngest dancers seem to get most the applause as their elaborate expressions and adorable costumes drew all eyes to their performance.
However, the adult tap class also won admiration with their rendition of “Putting On The Ritz” with bargain costumes from The Family Resource Center.
The recital closed with the giving of attendance awards and trophies for years of participation with the dance school.
The Dance Connection begins its summer semester of tap, jazz, hip-hop, ballet and belly dancing classes starting June 11, and has scheduled week-long daily dance camps for youngsters home from school.
