On Sunday, we hosted Paco’s Expose Dance Competition. It was a first for both the Vox and Expose. Over 50 dancers and their families visited the Vox on Valentine’s Day. The dancers ranged in age from 4 to 14. Many performances were solos but we did have a few large groups. One dance featured 18 girls on the dance floor at one time.Alistair_20100214_5653 Alistair_20100214_5642 Alistair_20100214_5666

The dance competition brought in judges Jacoby Mosby and Devan Watring. Both judges are originally from the metro area but have training and experience from around the country. During a break in the competitive routines, both judges showed off some of their skills. Later in the day, Paco and several other professional dancers entertained the crowd.

Also on the program was the Extreme Show Down Audition.
This live mock audition was a unique experience for the dancers to learn and perform a short routine in about 20 minutes. After the performance, the field was narrowed to 5 dancers and then those 5 dancers performed the routine several more times. Contestants were judged and trophies were given for 2 runners up, a third, second and first place.
