Pamela is oh so talented and endearing in her solo show recounting the journey she took achieving what she had been told was an impossible dream. We are left entertained and rooting for her all the way. Her smile and enthusiasm are infectious and her dance moves (and yes... LOTS of dancing!😁) are guaranteed to stir up the music in your heart.

The video presentations and photos are well placed, giving us a real look into the dance life she carved out for herself.
Loved the honesty as well as the secrets she chose to share.
So nice to hear her speak up about the things that otherwise fester as shame... stories, I, for one, can relate to.
