Pacific Ballroom Dance (PBD), a local nonprofit dance studio out of Auburn, presents its annual winter concert, Let Love Lead.

Performances are 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30 and Friday, Dec. 1 at the Auburn Performing Arts Center, 702 Fourth St. NE.

Dancers will showcase flowing Viennese waltzes, energetic sambas, holiday swing, and rhythmic Latin medleys.

“I knew I wanted the winter concert to focus around the idea of love,” said Katie Mecham, PBD artistic director. “Let Love Lead is a concept that reminds us to put love at the center of our relationships, letting it guide our interactions. Within a ballroom partnership, there is a conversation continuously happening between two people. This silent conversation is what we call ‘lead’ and ‘follow.’

“With all the crazy things happening in the world today, I wanted to put together a show that highlights our need for love and recognizes the power it can have in transforming our lives,” Mecham said. “We cherish the connections and memories we share together.”

Pacific Ballroom Dance is a nonprofit youth-focused ballroom dance studio. Its mission is building character in youth through a positive ballroom dance experience. The program enriches the lives of students with experiences that teach leadership, inclusiveness, teamwork, excellence, fitness and respect.
