Louisiana Dance Theater's annual gambol at the Strand was in abeyance of SRAC funds
Happily, the money was allocated and Anglin's La Dance Theater group took the stage. They shared the evening with Randy Allen's Impulse Dance Theater of the La School for Math, Sci & the Arts and with the scintillating Orchesis Dance Company of Grambling University.
Also contributing two solo numbers was nationally-known Shreveport dancer Michael Phillips. A member of La Dance Theater who didn't dance with the ensemble because of conflicts with lacrosse and fencing, Phillips danced to Billy Joel's Summer, Highland Falls and, later in the show, to Dean Martin's Aint That a Kick in the Head.
While each troupe presented dance that was well-rehearsed and pleasing to the eye, Phillips and the large Orchesis Dance Company were at a riveting level of expertise.
