The Lady Hoofers 2nd annual Holiday Concert at Christ Church Neighborhood House featured new choreography, old favorites, live jazz, and vocalists. We were thrilled to welcome back Justin Sekelski on bass, James Santangelo on keys and Khary Shaheed on drums. New this year - first company dancer Deedee Mann shared her vocal talents, and the AMLA Children's Choir joined our Youth Company to present "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
