After a quick run through of our routine for the night, the show started up with a fashion show displaying some gorgeous dresses for the brides to be. One by one the models made there way out of a hallway off to the side and onto the dance floor. This was exciting for me because I knew in just a few short minutes after our “pretend” brides for the night made they way out the floor, we would finally get our show started and really see how much fun this crowd can be.
Now all of our Elite entertainers are lined up behind me, waiting for the anticipated cue to head out onto the dance floor and kick our show off with some style. Kris A. gets the mic, says a few words, then out we come clapping our hands to “Lets Get Loud” as we try and get the room…loud! We’re all feeling great as we roll through the dance and kick the mic over to Mike (love saying that) as he begins a sample of intros, using a lovely couple in the crowd whose names I believe were John and Jackie. Mike the invites them up for a slow dance being sung by another wonderful entertainer at Elite, Tara Feely. Jackie emphatically shakes her head no as she laughs, maybe a little embarrassed but still having fun, as she stays in her seat to watch a beautiful performance by Tara. She finished her performance strong and hands the mic again, back to Mike as we get ready to start this party rocking. I have the honor of emceeing the first song of the night which happens the be a classic one from the 50’s, “The Twist”. I extend the first of many invites to our crowd to come join and dance as I get everyone on the dance floor onto one leg and test them to see how low they can twist. Following “The Twist”, we have eight more party favorites and great emcees to get everyone we can out on the dance floor for fifteen minutes having an awesome time.
I could go into detail describing each and every song and how awesome it was having such a great crowd (like I had thought we would walking in) and how amazing each one of our emcees did that evening. But, these are only words on a page. The real fun was at the show and I can’t possibly express that here. This is a job that has some great moments with each show, wedding, birthday, or any other event you can imagine being so different, its always a brand new experience each time. Thanks to everyone who made that evening a great success and I hope to see all of you at our next showcase!
