It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again.

The holiday season is fast approaching and in Ahwatukee, the annual Festival of Lights is a wonderful start to it. It would be even better if the entertainment at the festival was more than just one dance studio having its members perform.

I understand that the person who is head of the entertainment committee is a volunteer and just happens to own the said dance studio, but I don’t believe that dance should be the only representation of the community. I am sure that if there was a talent show, all sorts of musicians, magicians, and yes dancers, would be present.
