CAPE GAZETI, Friday, September 26 - October 2, 1997 - 77 Delaware Music Festival creates latest line dance craze The Georgetown Hispanic Fes- rival inspired the Delaware Music School (DMS) to form its 1996 "Macarena" community-outreach program. The iniative was so successful, it will continue this year, even without the macarena. It all started last summer when Gonzalo Martinez, an arts sup- porter and champion of the Latino community, called Donna DeKuyper, the director of the mu- sic school, and asked if the school could participate in the festival. With music classes just starting up again for the school year, there were no performing groups or en- sembles ready to perform. But, DeKuyper said, DMS could teach the macarena, a line dance made so popular because anyone could do it. Debbie Kee, DMS's Early Childhood Kinder- Del offers theater trips on October Tech $57 for Adult Plus members and $30 for Delaware Tech students. Maya Angelou will provide in- spiration on Sunday, Oct. 19, at the Three Little Bakers Dinner Theatre. Preferred seating will be given to those who travel to see this po- et, historian, author and actress and enjoy a delicious dinner. The cost is $56 for the public, $53 for Adult Plus members and The arts, plays and theatre are the focus of several trips planned in October by Delaware Tech Owens Campus in Georgetown. On Sunday, Oct. 5, see "Propos- als," a Neil Simon play with a lot of laughter. Set in the Poconos, this play delves into affairs of the heart. Or- chestra seats at the Kennedy Cen- ter and transportation are included at the cost of $60 for the public, $23 for Delaware Tech students. Melba Moore will highlight Fri- day, Oct. 24, with orchestra seats at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington to enjoy an evening of "A Swell Party - The Cole Porter Songbook," The cost is $54 for the public and $52 for Adult Plus members. For more information and pre- registration call 856-5618 or 855- 1617.

Then, after a few teaching lessons with Kee, DeKuyper took macarena line-dance lessons on the road throughout the fall to schools, senior centers, YMCAs and Boys and Girls Clubs all over southern Delaware. But this year there is no macare- na, so what to do? Make one up! Country singer/songwriter Pam Tillis released a catchy song a few months ago called "Mi Vida Lo- ca," which means "My Crazy Life." The DeKuyper-Kee team creat- ed the "Crazy-Life" line dance. It's just as easy and maybe even more fun than the macarena. Schools and community organi- zations should call the Delaware Music School at 422-2043, if they would like to set up Mi Vida Loca dance lessons. The Delaware Music School of- fers quality private and group mu- sic lessons for all ages in southern Delaware. Financial assistance is available and tuition-free early childhood programs are provided by the Delaware Foundation for Retard- ed Children. -0 for dinner A I0000AITr 302-227-5767 mc,e'uavons z,u S(IlNSET SPECIALS between 5:30 E, 6:30 p.m. 1/2 PRICE EDITREIES AIND DESSERT Sunday thru Friday Open 7 Days LOOK FOR OOR SPECIAL WINE 8 CIGAR DIIINERS 50-C Wilmington Avenue.
