OK so not oranges, but how about an Orange Bowl? Not one in your cabinet but down in Miami in January? The elections are over, and now it is time to dance. Yes, dance if you are happy, and dance to shake off some disappointment.

Please join Eye On Annapolis  tonight at 6 pm at Annapolis High for an amazing night to promote and support dance. As you know the quest is on. The dream is in reach. The Annapolis Middle School Dance Company has been selected to perform at the 2011 Orange Bowl half-time show in Miami. This opportunity gives the dancers real world connections in dance education including classes and rehearsals with master choreographers and the ability to collaborate with fellow student dancers from across the nation. Cool, huh? Add in performing in front of thousands of people live and on television with THE GOO GOO DOLLS and you get the idea.

The AMS Dance Company cannot do it without you. They need your help. From the selection process to the approval process, from the kudos from family and friends to the Mayoral Citation, from the endless fundraising, to being $4800 from their goal, these 12 dancers are ready. They have been busy of late doing what they do best, learning a new dance to show off to you at tonight’s benefit. Come out and show your support. We need Annapolis to cheer them on as they fulfill an opportunity of a lifetime. Please widely distribute this email!
