THRILLER!!!!!!!!!!!

From left to right, my "niece" Carrie, Olivia and Sarah. Three of the loveliest zombies I've ever seen.




WHAT A NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday night was unbelievable!!! The kids and faculty of St.Peter School put on the best show in town!!!!

It was called, So You Think You Can Dance... With The Teacher's

Grades seven and eight along with teachers formed amazing groups and performed dances , choreographed by themselves to songs from the decades. They danced from the 50's to the 90's.

Olivia was in the 80's, my personal favorite! The song they danced to was Micheal Jackson's ... THRILLER.

They were AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before each dance there was a video interview. They were all hysterical. In the 80's interview the kids are "going along" with the idea of there being a national competition for the winners to attend. They are so funny. I love how wonderfully faculty and children play along.

We even had local celebrity judges.

And for our listening enjoyment the fifth through eighth grades sang some fabulous songs in between the dancing. It was great to see the kids get into the music, and have fun with it!!!

It was one of the best nights we have ever shared with our school community and one of the proudest moments as a parent.

The 80's won the competition. They all worked so hard. All the decades were great. All the kids were practicing before and after school . They all put in many hours and the night showed it.

Thank you teachers and children for this exceptional treat!!!!!

Love it! Didn't we all have the Thriller dance memorized? I think of the movie 13 Going on 30 w/ Jennifer Gardner...ha ha ha I am giddy with childhood memories =)

No doubt Lori! I think the whole audience was a little envious! Doesn't everyone want to pull a Jennifer Gardner and start dancing Thriller.
