Central Park was filled to capacity in
celebration of the
Anniversary of San Pedro on November
27th. Everyone present
knew that the entertainment would be spectacular since both dance groups
from San Pedro would be performing. What many didn't know was that some
of these presentations would bring them to their feet, as the members of
the San Pedro Dance Company performed their best selections ever
The festivities commenced as early as two-thirty in
the afternoon with a beach volleyball tournament. Several teams battled
for the Township trophy. In the male division, Corozal won
2nd place with third
place going to the Sea Turtle team. The female trophy went to the San
Pedro High School team. Trophies for the winning teams were awarded
immediately after the tournament.
The evening celebrations were brought to a start with
the introduction of Mayor Alberto Nuñez who welcomed the gathering.
During his address, he recalled fifteen years ago; that significant
signing at Central Park, that brought San Pedro to Town status. The Hon.
Patty Arceo also addressed those present and made special mention of the
first Town Board leaders and their task of leading San Pedro Town through
its first three years.
The entertainment began with a presentation by the
students of Little Angel's Pre-school and various classes from San Pedro
R.C. School. Barbara's Dance Group performed some of their newest
selections, displaying great talent and original costumes. Students of
San Pedro High School also entertained with a comedy skit which brought
much laughter to the crowd.
The San Pedro Dance Company opened their part of the
program with a special dance in honor of the town's
15th anniversary. The
Senior members dressed in white gowns and accompanied by their chaperons
danced to the traditional waltz. During this dance a special appearance
was made by Miss San Pedro 1999-2000, Miss Delia Alamilla. Township Day
is also the dance company's anniversary date and they celebrated with
their best renditions.
More impressive was the introduction of
male dancers in the company. The fast growing group has now added a total
of eleven young men to its company. Their version of the famous
"Magalena" from the movie "Dance with me," made a great impression on the
audience. The well-choreographed dance and synchronized movement of the
dancers was rewarded with thunderous applause. The dance company finished
their presentation with a top-ten hit: Lou Bega's "Mambo #5." This
dance will go down in history as one of the best seen on the island.
After the presentation the audience went wild and some even got to their
feet to show their appreciation.
Immediately following the show, a dance was held on
the beach with the sounds of Unity Band. The overall presentation was
excellent and once again Township Day was celebrated with the best talent
our island offers.
