On August 23rd, the night before the Twin Falls Temple Dedication, there was a performance of a dance. The place is at our local fairgrounds in the rodeo arena, which took some doings to make it functional! They made a huge stage, (which has the kids sitting on in the top photo, waiting for the show to begin) that was 160 by 88 feet to have an area to dance. There was also sod brought in that is around the stage. Added in one corner is a large water fall representing the Shoshone Falls. You can see all kinds of tents around in the background...it was an amazing production to put on! The youth (ages 12-18) from the 14 local stakes in the temple district are making up the dancers....that is 3,200 youth!!

By the way, you can click on these photos to be able to enlarge them!
To the right of the stage are bleachers of singers! Tearsa is in the bleachers over by the tents.
Above is the falls and the sod. It is so nice to see the arena look so green! On the back bleachers and on the grass are leadership that help put this production together. Everyone is waiting for the keynote speaker!
With the sun bright in their eyes, our prophet Thomas S. Monson has arrived. He talks to the youth, one item he mentions is the 3D's -Decision Determination Destiny. Also on the stand visiting for the weekend are, Pres. Henry B. Eyring, Elder Quintin L. Cook & Elder Claudio Costa.
After the Prophet moves to the bleachers the show begins, with the whole group (this is only part) and blue ribbons, representing water. The theme of the evening was 'Living Waters' "In Magic Valley our physical lives depend upon mountain streams, irrigation wells and the Snake River. Our spiritual lives depend upon the living water from the Savior."
