In the spirit of Christmas, Dillard’s in Southwest Plaza held a special shopping event for their top clients.  This event was an opportunity for the top spenders to have an exclusive chance at Christmas shopping.  The department store invited Adventures in Dance to entertain these special guests.

The demonstration featured the youth squad dancing the Swing, the Foxtrot, the Bohemian Polka, and the Queen’s Waltz.

The dance demonstrations had solo performances by Craig and Jessica dancing the American Ballroom Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz.  Robyn and Bill dancing the Quickstep, the Paso Doble, the Samba, the Cha-cha, and the Rumba. Melvin and Holly dancing the Tango, the Mambo and the Samba.
