And We Danced DJ Entertainment had an awesome night celebrating the Bellefonte Area High School Class of 2020 Junior Prom in the high school auxiliary gymnasium.

The young women wore a variety of colorful and exotic full-length evening gowns, above the knee gowns or a play on short and long gowns. Young men were clad in trendy and colorful tuxes alongside debonair suits. Everyone was excited and eager to dance the night away.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment officially opened the dance floor at 7:30pm. The floor remained packed with guests dancing for the remainder of the night. During Pitbull’s “Fireball,” guests formed a party train and circled the room adding more and more people to the party train lineup. The “Cupid Shuffle,” “Cha Cha Slide” and the “Macarena” also showed the great fun and dancing abilities of the guests that night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of celebrating Angelina’s quinceañera at the Mountain View Country Club while winter storm Harper was blowing rain, sleet, ice and snow into the Centre County region. Jennifer Swindle was the photographer gathering Angelina, her family, and her Court together to snap some awesome pictures of this fabulous event. Delectable Delights by Heather Luce provided the sumptuous three tier cake.

Angelina wore a beautiful sleeveless, royal blue, floor length gown with an exceptionally full skirt and alternating ruffles of royal blue organza for her presentation with accentuating beading on the bodice. Her damas, female members of the quinceañera court, were attired in a sleeveless, taupe, lace bodice with a short champagne colored skirt. Angelina’s chambelanes, her honor escort and male members of the quinceañera court, sported white shirts, royal blue suspenders, royal blue bow ties and black pants.

A quinceañera is a celebration of a young girl’s coming of age on her fifteenth birthday. The cultural roots of a quinceañera reside in the areas colonized by Spain in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The night includes food, music, the formal entry, the toast, the father/daughter dance, the crowning, the changing of shoes, the very important waltz performed by the quinceañera, her honor escort and her Court, the cake cutting and the thank-you’s. The quinceañera traditionally never danced in public until they turned fifteen. So, the quinceañera waltz is a very elaborate choreographed dance introducing the young girl to society.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment furnished the magical old, new and Spanish tunes for all to enjoy that night. Dancing began with a slow number while Angelina and her father, Reggie, danced the traditional father/daughter dance. The dance floor was opened for all to relax and have some fun before the traditional quinceañera waltz. The quinceañera waltz was marvelous, and Angelina had the opportunity to not only dance with her chambelan but also her brother. It was a touching moment to see the brother and sister waltz together. The crowd sang Feliz Cumpleaños or Happy Birthday to Angelina after she cut the cake. The night ended with Donna Summer’s singing “Last Dance”.

Thank you Angelina for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your quinceañera. Feliz decimoquinto cumpleaños!

No one wanted to go home at the end of the night! And We Danced DJ Entertainment played one more request before sending the guests into the night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment was proud to provide the right songs and music for Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz’s spectacular wedding reception. Jen did not have a particular theme for the day, but she knew that poppies and ranunculus had to be the flowers of the day. She then chose colors that would work well with her choice of flowers. Jen wore a beautiful taupe dress, and her bridesmaids wore poppy colored dresses. The groom and groomsmen sported blue suits with poppy colored ties.

Jennifer Berkebile and Erik Schmalz met while in college at Duquesne University. They moved to the State College area to continue their education. Erik proposed to Jen in May, 2016.

The Prom committee spent the morning and part of the afternoon decorating the ballroom with balloons, table arrangements, lights, a HUGE candy bar and various other decorations.  The Mountain View Country Club had a wonderful buffet meal ready for the guests with chocolate cake, red velvet cake or cheesecake for dessert.  Each table held small jars for guests to fill with delicious candy such as Swedish fish, M&Ms and Hershey Kisses.  The guests also had to vote for the 2018 Prom King and Queen.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment asked the crowd if they had their party shoes ready for the night.  Many guests quickly showed us their sneakers and screamed they were ready to have some fun.  The dance floor opened at 7:30 pm.  From this point on, the guests quickly began to leave their seats and head to the dance floor.  The floor remained packed with guests dancing for the remainder of the night.  The guests also formed two party train lines during the night.  Two young men were lifted and surfed the crowd.  Who knew the nineties song “Shoop” by Salt-N-Pepa would have one young man dancing his heart out.  The “Cupid Shuffle” and “Cha Cha Slide” also showed the great fun and dancing abilities of the guests.

At 9pm, And We Danced announced the 2018 Penns Valley High School Prom King and Queen.  The 2018 Prom King was Carl Mundt, and the 2018 Prom Queen was Dayna Brown.  They danced to Taylor Swift’s “Today was a Fairytale.”  Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” ended the wonderful night for the guests.  They gave the Prom committee and chaperones a big rousing applause before we all said goodnight.

By the third song, the dance floor was packed with guests partying. Lights were flashing while bubbles were brewing as guests performed the Cupid Shuffle and Cha Cha Slide. The guests were having such a great time!

The night was going great until the witching hour. The party was over, but guests wanted encore music to continue dancing the night away. The Federal Taphouse needed to reopen for their clientèle, so the marvelous party had to end.  As the party ended, the guests fist-bumped and thanked us for an awesome time. The Federal Taphouse staff were dancing away while cleaning up and also said thank you for the marvelous music.  This was clearly a night to remember for all!

Military training has been a tradition since the inception of Penn State. In the early years, training was provided by civilians familiar with military protocol. Later, a full-time professor of Military Science was added to the roster at Penn State. Penn State provided military training for many men that fought in World War I and World War II. In 1916, an ROTC unit was established at Penn State. Throughout the years, training has changed from the initial drills to instruction in all branches of the military to general military science training. Today, Penn State has one of the top ROTC programs in the country. The Nittany Lion Battalion today includes four companies. Three are known on the main campus, and the fourth is part of the Altoona campus.

Thank you Penn State Army ROTC for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your 2019 Dining Out!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the opportunity to provide music for the recent 2018 Fit For Fritz fundraiser, where a walk-a-thon, dodgeball tournament, and fun games were held at the Penn State multi-sport facility. The fundraising event is in honor of Fritz Spence, assistant track and field coach at Penn State, who was diagnosed twice with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) but has twice battled the disease and is today in remission. Each year, the Penn State Track & Field athletes raise money in honor of Fritz Spence and donate the proceeds to Hope Lodge.

Hope Lodge is a facility funded by the American Cancer Society for cancer patients and their families throughout the United States. It provides a cost-free-living environment for cancer patients and their families in their time of need. The money raised each year during the Fit For Fritz event is donated to the Hope Lodge located in Hershey, Pennsylvania. This is the facility Fritz and his family spent a great deal of time at while receiving his treatments.

The event started with the singing of the national anthem by Elyse Skerpon, a junior on Penn State’s Track and Field roster. Fritz then began the walk-a-thon with the firing of the gun. The gun didn’t want to fire, but Fritz finally got it working! The participants did eight laps around Penn State’s indoor track field located in the multi-sport facility. Once the eight laps were completed, groups began to play cornhole, shoot some baskets, sign up for the dodgeball tournament, and play some fun games. The dodgeball tournament was a big hit with participants. Many groups signed up to play in the event. The tournament didn’t conclude until the final 15 minutes of the event.  Coach Spence even made a guest appearance behind the DJ booth!

Everyone present at the event had the opportunity to register and be a bone marrow match for someone in need. There were also theme baskets. A person could purchase a ticket and place the ticket in the ticket carrier located in front of the theme basket they personally wanted to win. Winners were announced at the end of the event.

Thank you Fritz and Penn State’s Track & Field athletes for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your fundraising activity.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment is looking forward to next year’s Fit For Fritz fundraising event!
