“We Live Dance” is a showcase of original choreography from nearly a dozen local choreographers.  Dances feature performers of all ages from three years old to adult.  This performance is a showcase of a wide range of dance styles including ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip- hop, lyrical, and musical theatre.  This is the 26th year that MMPAC has put on their annual showcase.  It is truly a show for all ages and each year it comes close to selling out.

Kimberly Price is the Director and owner of MMPAC, “Performing at the Weinberg is a special experience for our dancers and for the audience.  The audience grows each year because people come back to simply enjoy seeing dancers who love what they are doing.  Our alumni have gone on to professional careers throughout the world.  It’s a chance for Frederick to see local talent that often ends up traveling the world performing.”

Brianna2Featured in the performances will be MMPAC’s pre-professional reparatory company Dance FX. Brianna Alico, is a member of Dance FX and will attend Columbia University in New York City on full scholarship to pursue her dream of studying biochemistry, while also continuing to pursue her passion for dance in the big apple. “My time at MMPAC and my time dancing and performing has taught me so much about life, responsibility, and myself. I believe you can see that when we perform,” says Ms. Alico.

MMPAC is committed to instilling a life long love of the arts and giving back to the community through dance.  Each year MMPAC performs charity concerts at FCC, performs at local nursing homes and dances at community festivals and openings throughout Maryland.

Ronnie Milsap in Concert http://www.weinbergcenter.org/12010/ronnie-milsap-in-concert/ http://www.weinbergcenter.org/12010/ronnie-milsap-in-concert/#respond Sun, 03 Apr 2016 19:58:14 +0000 http://www.weinbergcenter.org/?p=12010 Continue reading ]]> “Nashville’s own performer.” -The Country Music Encyclopedia

Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap early in life found inspiration in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues — music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.

Awards: Named male vocalist of the year by the Country Music Association, 1974, 1976, and 1977; album of the year awards from Country Music Association, 1975, 1977, and 1978; named entertainer of the year by the Country Music Association, 1977; Grammy Awards 1986, for “Lost in the Fifties Tonight,” and 1987 (with Kenny Rogers) for best country vocal duet.

Benefits Children & Families in the Hillcrest / Waverley Communities

Each and every year, our loyal family audiences ask us, “How do you do it?  A great show for all ages every year.  We LOVE it!”  Our show producer, Russell “RG” Smith spends hours upon hours of time reviewing acts and has another excellent show planned for 2016.  We have a blend of new and returning acts, so, get ready for another great year. Oh, and please bring a few new families to the show this year so they, too, can experience the best-family-night out they can imagine.


Our “newby” this year is Skinny German Juggle Boy, HILBY. This is Hilby’s first time with us and we are so pleased that he has added us to his jam packed performance schedule. He has performed on all seven continents—-yes, even Antarctica. (His show went well there, but he told us he had a very “cool” response). Hilby will guide us through the evening as well as perform incredible juggling feats with unlimited numbers of articles. Blend in his unique brand of comedy and you have HILBY. We are certain you will love Hilby and we will certainly have him back in future years.


This is the most sought after dog show in the country. Yes, they have been with us before, but they are back with an all new cast of rescue dogs and all new tricks and stunts. Each year, people want to see an animal act and we have the best for you. If you love pets, you will love Mutts Gone Nuts!


Magicians and sisters, Jessica, Shayna and Mandy Reed were with us several years ago. Since that time their “Sisters” act has become bigger and better than ever. They have performed all over the USA and been invited to France, as well. Most recently, the Reed Sisters were one of only six acts chosen to represent North America in the world championship of magic, FISM, held in Italy.


No other act in the history of magic has generated as many laughs as the Great Kohl and Company. In fact, you may never have to laugh again after watching these incredibly hilarious people perform. It is so very hard to describe how funny these three are unless you see them. If anything can go wrong, it will — in the most hilarious way. You must see Kohl and Company.

If you would like to support the 2016 Comedy & Magic Spectacular, please call Kim Hart at the YMCA of Frederick County at 301-663-5131, ext. 1222 or email khart@frederickymca.org
