Tillamook School of Dance will be presenting the 4th "A Merry Christmas Spectacular", a holiday revue and toy drive this Sunday, December 10th at 2pm. Admission is one (1) new and unwrapped toy per family or $5 per person. The school has teamed up with DHS, Healthy Families, and Sacred Heart Church to help provide kids in the community a memorable holiday season. In 3 years, TSD has donated over 1,500 toys.
Although the Holiday Revue is only in its 4th year, Tillamook School of Dance has been around since 1962. It was founded by Jan Lommen Colleknon. As a kid, she travelled the northwest and the country performing at both the amateur and professional level, as well as making television appearances showcasing her tap dance skills. After graduating Neah Kah Nie High School, she began her career teaching dance, which spanned 35 years.
Dance seems to be a family affair as her daughters, Tracy and Pink, followed in their mother's footsteps as dancers. After Jan retired, the dance school was passed from mother to daughter.
Today, the school offers a variety of programs for kids,
