Ladysmith Black Mambazo


Posted on Oct 16, 2008

Last Friday, we celebrated my Mother-in-law's Birthday by taking her to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Salem.  My husband had a trigger finger when he purchased tickets and we had glorious  front row seats.  The show was amazing.  It was far beyond my greatest expectations.  The energy these guys have is unreal.  The concert was at the beautiful Elsinore theater.  I have walked past this...

So You Think You Can Dance

I'm a sucker for dance.  I love everything about it.  I think this love started from watching Debbie Allen on Fame when I was a kid.  Since then I've watched everything I can from musicals to the cheesiest of dance shows on TV.  Last night I went to see the So You Think You Can Dance tour with a friend.  I've been addicted to this show from it's premiere.  These contestants are so talented...

My husband and I bought season tickets to this year’s Broadway Shows.   We had talked about doing this for years.  Finally we got of our duffs and did it.  Having season tickets makes me feel so grownup!  The first in the series was A Chorus Line which we saw on Saturday.  A Chorus Line is probably my all time favorite musical.  I first saw the stage play when I was in high school when I...

Jefferson Dancers


Posted on May 8, 2008

As part of my Birthday present, my sister took me out to dinner and to see the Jefferson Dancers.  This high school dance troupe was started in 1976 and is one of the oldest dance companies in Portland.  I first heard of them when they came to my high school to perform a showcase.   I was hooked after that and saw them religiously for years.  I hadn’t been for several years now, so this was a great...
