December 2nd found many members and guests at Champion Ballroom enjoying an evening of dance and entertainment. The ballroom tables were beautifully decorated with candles, fresh greenery and red Christmas balls. The Christmas tree stood in the corner and glowed with bright lights and lots of ornaments which made for a nice photo backdrop.
Denise and her committee of "elf" volunteers set up the tables & decorations while another group of "elves" worked in the kitchen getting all the delicious goodies ready for everyone to enjoy.
The Sunday dance class started the performances with a beautiful American foxtrot composed of 13 couples all dressed in red & black. Five additional SDSD members did performances with their instructors. Following some general dancing The dance class started the second performance with a fun Cha Cha formation with 12 couples. Five more members with their partners or teachers finished off the show with a variety of dances that wowed the audience. There are really too many dancers to list for credits here but you will see them all in the photos.
In addition to the show a highlight of the party was the presentation of the toys to the Marines for their "Toys for Tots collection. SDSD members and guests did an outstanding job of collecting a lot of toys for their holiday drive. These toys will go a long way to putting smiles on lots of children's faces this Christmas.
