On June 9, Pamela Burton produced a dance show on stage at the National Portrait Gallery, for an international audience. She pulled in some top talents from the world of popular dance, and crafted the various acts into a seamless "Dancin' Through the Decades" production. Starting in the 50s with nationally known Lindy and Swing dancers, and then moving to the 60s with slick tap dancing to "Mr. Bojangles," performed by a former cast member of "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk." Next up, the 70s, with world champion Hustle dancers performing their hot version of "Disco Inferno," followed by an amazing display of break dancing and hip hop from the 80s/90s. The show concluded with a rousing finish, when the entire ensemble, in red, white and blue costumes, danced to James Brown's "Living in America!"
Pamela had a great time, and had high praise for Jerry Jeffries of GEP Washington, his staff, the venue, and the vendors: All Stage and Sound, Atmosphere Lighting, Event Digital Photography, and Jenny Lehman Videography.
Pamela said, "Jerry was a dream to work with. He truly trusts his vendors. We gave him our best to produce a great result." For those of us in the event business, when all the pieces fit together, it's such a great pleasure!
