Each tree is uniquely decorated, so when it comes to choosing a favorite, it's nearly impossible! Each guest will be provided with a ticket to vote for their favorite tree, and the winning decorator will be announced on Sunday evening at the close of the Festival.

There will be live entertainment to enjoy and a holiday marketplace to help you with your holiday shopping. This event is for all ages and is sure to jump-start the holiday season! All proceeds benefit both the Children's Miracle Network and Saint Vincent Foundation.

I am also excited to perform at this event because of the anticipation and hype of what a fun island themed party can bring. I look forward as always to collaborating with other musical talents and seeing where the chemistry of different groups will take the performance. With such great potential you never know where a show like this will take you. I plan on choosing alot of dynamic, high energy, uptempo music, including latin jazz, with the use of powerful and exuberant movement in my choreography to get this audience in the island mood. The night with all its many layers promises to be a one of a kind experience. I hope all have a chance to come for a fun time and to give to a worthy cause that is Shriners Children's Hospital."

Brett Fallon's Dance Elite* Therapeutic Dance Project brings Christmas Joy to Corry Middle/High School

Brett Fallon Brings Christmas Joy to Corry Middle and High School Life Skills Classrooms This Year.

Brett Fallon first came to the school with his Therapeutic Dance Class and Dance Demo in early December.  This curriculum includes a complete stimulating, interactive class designed to target creativity and use dance as both a physical and emotional outlet.  Also, Fallon was called in to help prepare students for their upcoming School Christmas Dance.  Some of these children do not have the tools to express how they are feeling and interpret that into their physical world in terms of how they communicate movement to themselves and to others on a social level.  The class focused on using Christmas and winter-themed imagery, different positive feelings, coordination skills, artistic cardiovascular movement designed to encourage students responsibility for personal exercise, team work for social interaction, and guided improvisation to encourage and inspire personal dance artistry.  Fallon brings his personal "You can do it!" attitude approach in his teaching and own passion and "zest" for providing dance to others that allows the Christmas dance spirit to easily be manifested in each and every student.  This means personally walking around and engaging every student, including wheelchair-bound and non-verbal students while leaving them each the right amount of space to feel comfortable with the freedom to be inspired their own way.  Fallon also led by giving the students a brief dance demo/performance, encouraging them that they can each find dance within.  By the end of the class, the students were dancing in a free way, to the beat of their own drum, and also in sync with Fallon and the rest of their classmates.   Coordination did not seem to be an issue once the students were able to transpose their passion of dance from their hearts to their feet! 

Two weeks after the Therapeutic Dance Class, Fallon came back to school for the students' Christmas Dance.  The dance was a BIG hit!  Everyone had a merry time dancing to the songs of the season confidently with Fallon and their classmates.

This is just one example of what the Dance Elite* Therapeutic Dance Project has done for others who may not have this chance to dance.  The Project is growing and classes/interactive demos/performances are now able to be booked.  Fallon will be on hand to fit each clientele for an individualized program.  If you are interested in having the Dance Elite* Therapeutic Dance Project come to your facility, call 814.490.8781 or 814.688.9292.
