My daughter, Tara, has been a part of The Dance Connection, 161 Castle Creek Road, Binghamton for six years. They are encouraging, positive and stress the important things in life, if you've ever meet the owner, Ann, you would know exactly what I mean.

One of my favorite things is their annual June performances which features the FATHER/DAUGHTER dancers....Okay, it might not be the featured event but it's very special to me. I can't wait to dance with Tara this year, in fact it'll be a "thriller" for me.

It's happening this Friday, June 14th, and Saturday, June 15th at the Chenango Valley High School Theater. There are two performances of the DC REVUE on Friday and Saturday night beginning at 6 p.m.

The recreational and competitive students, ages 12 to adult perform tap, jazz, contemporary, modern, ballet and musical theater dance. It'll be highlighted by THE FATHER/DAUGHTER dancers...okay maybe not "highlighted" but it'll be fun.

This will be the 6th year that Tara and I have danced together in the show. For all of you that saw the show two years ago and my crash into the flowers, I have the answer to your questions.

No, I didn't do it on purpose. No, Tara and I don't plan on topping it...but you never know so don't miss the show. I heard that they plan on moving the flowers (again) before the Fathers and Daughters take to the stage.

There is also a children's performance of MY FAVORITE THINGS on Saturday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Recreational and competitive students ages 3 to 12 perform, along with acting and improv!

It's going to be two great days of dance as the Dance Connection celebrates it's 37th year this month. I would be honored if you joined us and hope to see you there this weekend.
