The 2018 Pennsylvania Special Olympics Summer Games is now a fond memory to the athletes, families, coaches, planners, vendors and volunteers.  And We Danced DJ Entertainment had an awesome time providing music for all of the wonderful people traveling through the Olympic Village at the Summer Games on the Penn State University Park campus May 31st, June 1st and June 2nd.  Not only were the Special Olympians dancing on the sidewalks, but coaches and family members were getting into the groove.  The Pennsylvania Special Olympics committee needs to set up a dance competition in next year’s Olympic games for the many athletes busting a move traveling to and from their event or relaxing at the Olympic Village!!

The BB&T Nookie Monster, Ike the Spike and Eat ‘n Park’s Smiley mascot were on hand dancing, shaking hands and posing for pictures with all travelers through the Olympic Village.  Many super heroes stopped by to say hello and pose for pictures with the Olympians, their coaches and family members while traveling to their next assignment.  Eat ‘n Park had smiley cookies available for all to eat and enjoy.

This is the 49th year for the Pennsylvania Special Olympics.  Over 2,000 athletes compete in the PA Special Olympics each year.  Athletes compete in three full days of aquatic, athletic, basketball, bowling, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, softball and tennis competitions.  Competitors must be at least 8 years old to compete and have one of the following conditions: intellectual disabilities, formal assessment measured cognitive delays, significant learning disabilities, or vocational problems associated with cognitive delays requiring specially designed instructions.  Local representatives can provide more details on how to become involved and participate in various Special Olympic events.

This is the second year that And We Danced DJ Entertainment had an opportunity to provide great music for all the Olympians and their families, and we look forward to again making the Olympic village lively and festive as the Special Olympics celebrates its golden anniversary next year!  Thank you Special Olympians for dancing, talking and showing us your medals of achievement!!

See you again next year!!!

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Pennsylvania’s Special Olympians were recently in State College for their annual floor hockey event at the Ramada State College Hotel & Conference Center. Later in the evening, And We Danced DJ Entertainment was spinning the athletes favorite songs while they danced the night away. The dancing didn’t start until 8pm that night, but the athletes could not wait to get inside the ballroom to begin dancing with their friends, family, coaches and Special Olympics staff.

Young and old were on the floor having fun. Lights were flashing while the athletes were doing the Cha Cha Slide, YMCA and the Chicken Dance. No line dance was missed that night. The kids were quick to kick their feet, raise their hands and shake their feathers to the classic tunes. It was great to see some athletes with their significant other slow dancing to some popular songs. They are AWESOME dancers! The Special Olympics staff were also dancing and singing along to their favorite tunes that night. No one was left out.

Before we knew it, the 10pm witching hour was upon us. All the athletes made sure to shake our hands before they left to get a good night’s sleep. We told them to come say hello and request a song as we will be at the Olympic Village from May 31 thru June 2, 2018 playing songs to keep the athletes, families and coaches energized before and after their Summer Special Olympics events on the Penn State campus. If you have a chance, stop by the Olympic village between May 31st and June 2nd to see some of these terrific kids having fun dancing to their favorite tunes before heading to an event or even after an event.

This is the second year And We Danced DJ Entertainment has been the DJs for this event, and we cannot wait to be part of the 2018 Summer Special Olympics day events!

Summer is going by so fast that we thought it would be a great idea to review some great times we had in the warm weather with some really awesome people! And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided athletes at the PA Summer Special Olympic Games with some incredible dance music between their competitions.  And We Danced DJ Entertainment had previously entertained them in March after their floor hockey competition, so we were all set to let them cut the rug! Guess what? They went wild and demonstrated their vast knowledge of musical moves.
