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!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had a fantastic night providing music for the Penns Valley High School 2018 Jr./Sr. Prom at the Mountain View Country Club on May 19th 2018.  Family members were waiting in the Mountain View Country Club’s parking lot to view the prom arrivals.  The doors opened at 6 o’clock, and guests quickly entered the ballroom.  The theme for the 2018 Prom was a masquerade.  From this point on, guests were either dancing in their seats or on the dance floor.

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.

Thank you Penns Valley High School for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be part of your 2018 Prom!

We hope to see you next year!!!
