Warren held its 7th annual Ribfest last weekend. The Ribfest is a four-day event. Bob and I attended Ribfest each day, beginning on Thursday afternoon (July 15). We listened to Paul Eisert in concert on Thursday afternoon. On Friday we listened to two Rock-n-Roll concerts. The first concert was the band “Jack the Dog”. The second concert was the band “The Earthquakers”. On Saturday we participated in the Thank A Vet Dam Run and listened to the country band “Willow Creek”. Sunday’s events included dance performances by members of the Dance Elite* Performance Company and a Classic Car Show. This blog post showcases the Dance Elite* Performance Company dance performances. My next Ribfest blog post will showcase the Classic Car Show.
On Friday I saw the last few minutes of a dance routine. The dancer performed shortly before the band “Jack the Dog” took the stage. While “Jack the Dog” performed, I walked up close to the stage and photographed the band. I wanted a picture from the other side of the stage. Rather than cross in front of the band, I decided to walk around behind the stage. The dancer was behind the stage. Thinking that I wasn’t supposed to be behind the stage, I quickly said that I was walking to the other side of the stage. The dancer wasn’t concerned that I was behind the stage. He was interested in my camera, stating that I had a nice camera. He asked why I take photographs. I told him that I take photographs because I like doing so, or something to that effect. The dancer asked if I was on Facebook. “Yes”, I said. He then told me that he was a dancer and asked if I would take his picture. He struck a pose, and I took his picture. The dancer is Brett Fallon; he is the Director of the Dance Elite* Performance Company.

On Sunday afternoon we enjoyed watching the dance routines of Brett Fallon and three young dancers. Brett is a very talented dancer. His performance was well choreographed and quite entertaining. The three young girls danced well. Two of the girls, sisters–one a few years older than the other–, danced together. They complimented each other quite well. The third girl danced alone. Her dance routine was lively and showed attitude. I enjoyed the dance routines of all three girls.
