Members of the Belize Dance Company put on an amazing show

San Pedro has been preparing to enter the Year 2000 in style and to make sure the celebrations are a hit, the San Pedro Town Board and the Y2KCC have put together a series of interesting events at Central Park leading up to the New Year.

    Lydia's Institute of Fine Education (LIFE) was given the privilege of opening the celebration. On December 24th the school presented a short but very sweet program that included the traditional "Birth of Jesus" scene played by the students, teachers and parents of LIFE. The Beginner's class stole the show with a song and dance rendition of "You better watch out" and other classes performed various Christmas dances.

    On December 26th, Barbara's Dance Group gave a wonderful performance of the Nutcracker Suite followed by presentations of their latest dances. The show was well-prepared and full of marvelous dance renditions complimented by elaborate costumes. The celebrations continued on the 27th as one of Belize's number one steel bands - The Pantempers entertained with their melodious sounds of steel instruments. This was a wonderful treat since San Pedro seldom gets to host these types of bands. The Pantempers' repertoire consisted of Christmas and traditional Caribbean songs. 

    Another wonderful show was witnessed on December 28th, as the Belize Dance Company exhibited only the best of Belizean folklore and modern dances. The Belize Dance Company is Belize's top dance group and has gained international recognition performing in the USA, Europe and many Central American countries. Their performance during the Millennium Celebrations was lively entertainment for the spectators.

    The extravaganza continued on December 29th with recitals from the students of San Pedro High School and the High School Choir. In addition the San Pedro Town Board recognized outstanding citizens of the community (deceased or living) with a special award. All of this will be followed by a Millennium Dance Presentation by the San Pedro Dance Company this evening. Everyone is invited to Central Park on New Year's Eve. The program promises to be a memorable one. On this night, past Miss San Pedro Queens, musicians, dance groups and Mothers of the Year will reunite in a special presentation. Party favors will be available during the countdown. Join the crowd and be a part of the last hours, minutes and seconds of the Millennium!
