Weekend Gala Event



Friday night we went to a gala event for the dance group.  If you remember, we had the 25th anniversary dance festival in August.   The gala was held at a ballroom or casino in Monterrey and all the dancers who were the originals or "seniors" were there along with the new group called "internacional" and the "juniors" or the newly formed group. 

It was truly a gala event.  We started out with a mass at the Purisma church downtown.  In fact, the priest was once a member of the original group.  We walked down the aisle in couples and sat in front where we were all guests of honor.  It was really something.
After mass, we headed to the casino where we had valet parking and a grand entrance.  There was a seven course dinner with wine and drinks and then awards were handed out to the original dancers.  All this was followed by a dance which lasted until 2 a.m.  I am posting this late as I was waiting for the pictures.
