    I would love to take my daughter and 2 of her friends to this event. I feel it would be very educational. I have also posted a commenton another contest and joined google friends for AOM as well as I am a FB friend of the site also.

    This looks interesting. I think my kids would like the interactive dancing before the show starts.
