Louisiana Dance Theater's annual gambol at the Strand was in abeyance of SRAC funds

Originally uploaded by trudeau.
"Due to the cutbacks in SRAC's budget we weren't sure whether we were going to be able to put on this show at the Strand Theater," Carol Anglin told the audience at La. Dance Alive! on Jan 20.

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.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

May this be
your time to laugh,
embrace & receive
personal peace,
Dr. Howdy
