The Peninsula Artists in Motion (PAM) Dance Co. hosted its first winter ball Feb. 4. We had a ball! The support of many individuals helped to make this event a success. PAM's mission to increase the opportunities for dance within our community, not only performance recitals but also dance events such as the ball, is to us a cultural necessity.

Thank you to all the folks who helped create a magical ball event; thank you to the Kenai Boys and Girls Club, Encore Dance Academy and Jennifer Ellis for the ballroom lessons, Jocelyn Wells, Steve Catalano, Isabelle's Fine Catering, and the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska.
Bob Ramponi and the Alaska Swing Co. were outstanding and the dance floor irresistible, thanks to their incredible musicianship.
Most importantly, thank you to the dancers in the company and everyone who attended. We hope to see you next year at PAM's winter ball.
