Pacific Ballroom Dance (PBD) will present “Celebrate,” a holiday concert, at 7pm on the evening of November 29th and 30th at the Auburn Performing Arts Center, 702 4th St. Northeast. One hundred forty dancers, age three to nineteen, will perform all varieties of Ballroom and Latin dance. And just for fun, the Grinch will appear for a foxtrot and Rudolph for a little west coast swing.

“The theme ‘Celebrate’ is about taking time to recognize the incredible people and experiences in our lives that make it meaningful. We have so much to be grateful for and we can share that joy with one another through the art of dance,” said Artistic Director Katie Mecham. “The mystic leader Osho once said, ‘Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated.’ The dancers have embraced this idea whole-heartedly and put together a wonderful show that is sure to delight audiences of all ages.”

Guest performer Jevohn Gentry, a recent PBD alumnus, will also take part in performing “Celebrate.” Jevohn is enjoying a budding career as a professional dancer and has appeared in several short films and dance videos. Last summer he was also seen briefly dancing as a contestant on So You Think You Can Dance.

The beauty of this show can be found in the diversity of pieces presented, as well as the broad range of ages and skill showcased. It’s the perfect way to kick-off the holiday season.

Pacific Ballroom Dance (PBD) began in 1994 as a small, local youth club with a goal to provide young teens with the opportunity to build respectful social skills, self-esteem, fitness and teamwork. In 2003, PBD became a 501©3 non-profit organization with a mission to build character in youth by providing a positive ballroom dance experience. Today, PBD is a thriving youth dance education studio based in Auburn, Washington, serving more than 1000 students annually from age 10-18 from throughout the Puget Sound area.
