Vicki’s School of Dance and Gymnastics performed to a packed house at the Fort Morgan High School auditorium Saturday night.The audience was there to see “Dance Party,” the school’s annual recital, which offered 16 different pieces in a kind of jukebox theme a feat which meant practicing since last fall, said Vicki Duke, owner of the school.Even though some of her students are only 2 1/2 years old and may not be able to tie their shoes, some of them can remember some intricate steps, she said.Duke has owned the school since 1993, but also worked for the previous owner when it was the Tatton School of Dance for 13 years, she said.A combination of modern dance, tap and ballet was in evidence as girls and boys of all ages showed off their skills.Gayle, Shafer, Leamon, Deal and Lockhart came back to dance the “Fandango.”Stark, Dittler, Weingarten and Mendoza returned to the stage for “Push It to the Limit.”The Jenny/Jerry the Jaguar class and the Jack in the Box class joined up to perform to “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.”Faith Shaver, Riley Shaver, Kiana Sandoval, Christa Sandoval, Pope, James, Dillehay, Mendoza and Rodriguez came back to perform “I Want to Be Happy.””Beauty and the Beast” was danced by Jade and Jonah Gleason, McKenzie and Bailey Dahl, Jess and Kreegar.The dancers from “Busy Bee Boogie” returned to perform in “Ray, Rah, Rah.””Alouette” was performed by Corral, Hoff, Toledo,
