Music and Dance Extravaganza
Here are the performances we filmed. In order to avoid infringing on copyright the music featured in the Dance Crew's performance has been replaced by two of the songs performed by our rock bands. The performances by the rock bands are audio only because they were not in frame when they performed.

The Middle of Starting Over Camptown Variations
Silent Night Dance Crew
Feeling Groovy Beautiful World
The Gumboots Song 1234
California Dreaming Talk About It
Let Go the Long White Sails You Really Got Me
