And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the honor of providing the musical entertainment and uplighting for Avery and Griffin as they celebrated their B’nai Mitzvah at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. During the busy cocktail hour, Avery, Griffin, family and friends had a chance to enjoy some fun-filled games. Great prizes were awarded to the winning player or team that evening. The Penn Stater’s Eric Paul Olbrich and his staff were awesome organizing the cleanup once the entertaining contests ended.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the hall pumped for Avery and Griffin’s grand entrance. They chose Panic! At the Disco’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” along with Lil Nax X featuring Billie Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” to make their grand appearance. They ran into the room with all the hooting, hollering and clapping normally heard at a sporting event. Rabbi David E. Ostrich said the prayer and broke the bread before everyone began enjoying the scrumptious buffet provided by the Penn Stater chefs and staff. Later, guests enjoyed cake, pie, and three delicious choices of Penn State Creamery ice cream for dessert. Friends and family were invited to take home some tasty candy treats.

Sara Rosenberger Blose of Bona Fide Photography captured the amusing game moments and exciting night. Balloons were hanging from the ceiling with twinkling lights alongside marvelous balloon decorations created by Star Valle Entertainment and Decor. Guests were busy behind Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG camera throughout the night. Guests were adjusting and changing props while the camera captured their memorable moment. And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the guests dancing the entire night. Avery, Griffin, family and friends had the dance floor packed the entire night. And We Danced DJ Entertainment ended the exhilarating night with Panic! At the Disco’s “Victorious.”

Thank you Avery, Griffin, Kate and Stuart for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your B’nai Mitzvah. Mazel Tov Avery and Griffin!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of performing at the 2019 Bellefonte Area High School Homecoming dance.

During the dance, students had a chance to greet the students chosen for the 2019 Bellefonte Area High School homecoming court.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment welcomed Bellefonte Area High School’s students entering the high school cafeteria with lights and music. Students in the room were dancing, singing, posing for selfies and taking video of the lively event. The Bellefonte Area High School students danced to quite a few crowd pleasers such as the Cupid Shuffle and the Cha Cha Slide. When Pitbull’s Fireball began to play, the crowd quickly formed a conga line that traveled throughout the cafeteria gaining more and more conga dancers.

Homecoming welcomes back current Bellefonte Area High School students, former Bellefonte Area High School students, Bellefonte Area High School teachers and former Bellefonte Area High School teachers. Usually homecoming is focused upon a sporting event such as a football game. Homecoming activities encouraged school pride and support as the Bellefonte Red Raiders took on the Penns Valley Rams.

Later in the week at the Bellefonte Red Raiders – Penns Valley Rams football game, Bellefonte Area High School crowned its homecoming queen and king at halftime. The homecoming court included second runners-up Kara Mellott and Mitchell Holden along with runners-up Olivia Reiter and Tyler Muse. The 2019 homecoming queen was Mallorie Smith. The 2019 homecoming king was Aaron Little. Congratulations to all of these fine young adults!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Israel and Nancy Chapa at Above The Valley Special Event Center. Israel and Nancy’s two lovely children planned the event. Israel and Nancy renewed their vows and celebrated with a lovely buffet furnished by Harrison’s followed by the cutting of the cake and dancing. Many friends and family members were on hand to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Nicole Chapa, daughter of Israel and Nancy, gave a brief history of the meeting and growth of love between Israel and Nancy. Nancy is a former flight attendant. While on a layover in New York City, Nancy and a fellow flight attendant decided they were hungry for Mexican food. The Mexican Restaurant’s maitre’d was Israel. Nancy found Israel handsome, while Israel was captivated by Nancy’s beauty. The couple finally eloped, and Israel opened a Mexican Restaurant in Connecticut. Eventually the couple retired and moved to the Centre County region of Pennsylvania.

Israel and Nancy were serenaded with violin music from their grandson David Diaz. A special song was written and performed for the anniversary couple by Joel Waan. Joel played the ukulele while singing to the happy couple and their guests. Nicole and her boyfriend, Vinny “Vungh” Waan, choreographed a lovely Bachata dance to Lola Jane’s “Kiss Me.” Nicole and Vinny were awesome Latin dancers. Later, they continued to wow the guests with their Latin moves.

Since the anniversary couple eloped the first time, their children wanted to celebrate this golden anniversary in a grander way with And We Danced DJ Entertainment. Nancy and Israel opened up the dance floor with “Country Bumpkin” by Cal Smith. Following the opening dance, And We Danced DJ Entertainment continued to play the music the happy couple enjoyed. Country, Salsa, Bachata, Merengue and Pop were the featured dance genres for the guests’ dancing enjoyment.

Thank you Israel and Nancy for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your Golden Wedding Anniversary festivities. Enjoy all the sweet memories you two garnered in your fifty years together!
