Gold Pan City Dance show brings joy to the world

Dancers age three to 18 showed their Christmas spirit in annual concert

The dancers from Gold Pan City Dance put on a holiday spectacular on Saturday night, in Deck the Halls with Gold Pan City Dance at Chuck Mobley Theatre.

Backstage before the show, the dancers were abuzz with excitement as hair was pinned, blush and lipstick were applied and costumes were pressed.

“We’ve been working on this show since about October,” explains Gold Pan City Dance owner Jessie Herman, as young dancers in costume as reindeer, snowflakes and sugar plum fairies skipped past in the dressing room.

Almost the entire dance school was involved, she says, with boys and girls from age three to 18 participating in the Christmas-themed show.

Parents, friends and dance enthusiasts were lined up out the door to enter for Saturday’s 5 p.m. show, and Herman says the early show was half sold, while the 7 p.m. show had been sold out for weeks.

“It’s a nice show of community spirit,” she comments.

The 18 numbers in the show ranged from ballet and tap to hip hop and jazz, so all forms of dance were represented.

The audiences were not disappointed as the young dancers’ festive numbers got everyone into the holiday spirit.
