Forget Dancing with the Stars, the stars of this show are powerfully muscled with an elegant and graceful way about them. It's lights, camera, action.... a costumed, choreographed dinner show in a salute to "The Love of horses" a moving work of art. August 16-17 2019

Once a year an event opens in Punxsutawney offering dinner and the Magical Dancing Horses entertainment show.  An unusual entertainment event like this is not usually available in smaller venues out of the big cities. The show is presented at the Dr. Wise's Beaver Run Arena which is transformed every year into  a magical  theater complete with spotlights, music and technical special effects. Friday night is the show only but on Saturday night a dining experience is offered making the event more rewarding. Each year over 100 people are served dinner under the white party tents.

This is the fifth annual event and the grounds are bustling already with the beginnings of the magical change over of a working horse arena. The big party tents go up just before the show and dining seating is by the lush green pastures of some of our show horses. The dining is hosted by Farmer's Inn Restaurant and their popular country style eating.

After dinner the audience strolls over to the Dancing Horse Theater to pick their seat for an entertainment master piece. Over an hour & half of music...lights...costumes and most of all some of the most beautiful horses in the world. The show being a smaller venue gives the audience a close encounter with all the action and beauty of these magnificent horses and riders. This entertaining  show ends with the chance to pet the horses and talk to the performers up close and personnel. Each year more effects are added....last year included a 30 ft video screen to incorporate into the show. Effects are controlled by the technical supervisor high above the floor and the sound is state of the art.

The riding arena at Beaver Run is transformed every year with curtains flowing from the ceiling, mirror ball flashing around the floor, the horses and riders enter with spotlights and music. The transformation is complete. The show requires about 10 performers with their horses.....there are numerous back stage hands moving props and people staged to control the order of the show. At least 5 people are in the control booth upstairs manning spotlights, music and direction of the show. The horses, who are the stars of the show, are very highly trained and most are a specialized breed...some have manes  almost touching the ground and others are just exciting to see.

No matter if you know horses or not you need only to sit and enjoy an evening not soon forgotten. This show can only seat about 180 people a night so understandably seats are at a premium. The reserve seats go first as they are the most desirable but the show only tickets have been kept to the lowest price possible so that all can attend.
