Guests will move to the second floor during the second hour, where they'll be entertained by Javier Juarez, the first named Performing Artist of the Year, and members of the Slidell Little Theatre. The event will showcase and allow guests the opportunity to see our previous award recipients actually doing what they've been honored for in the past.

Across The Border – The audience will thrill to the sight, sound and excitement of México in this culturally rich learning experience that takes you on a tour "Across the Border" to several regions of Mexico through dance. The audience will discover Mexico's unique and exciting traditions and participate in a traditional folklore dance.

Flash Mob - A Flash mob is a spontaneous public performance, usually a dance that appears seemingly out of nowhere typically with just one or two people and grows as the song progresses to a large group and, then quickly disappears. We can surprise your guests at your event with a fun choreographed dance or custom design a Flash Mob to meet your needs. We love to entertain when least expected.

Get Fit Learn To Dance – Dancing is a great way for kids of all ages to get fit. Besides being fun, dancing has many positive health benefits. Participants will be taught easy to follow dance routines set to high-energy Latin and international music.

Viva Malambo - A thrilling, percussive dance performance celebrating the traditions of the gaucho or Argentine Cowboy. Their intricate fast paced footwork is inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. The sound of the drums, reeling boleadoras and the charisma of the male dancers make Malambo an exciting and unforgettable experience. The gaucho’s keen sense of convictions, self-confidence, and fierce attitudes are also revealed in their performance. Viva Malambo is a powerful and entertaining show that will thrill audiences of all ages.
