Twistin' and shoutin'

Tunes filled the air and people danced in the street on Tuesday.

Hundreds of people of all ages packed a block of Washington Avenue in downtown Grand Haven during the Coast Guard Festival's Street Dance. The Beach Bashers performed as young and old alike danced the night away.

Bryce Samdal isn’t a stranger to showing off his dance moves. The 9-year-old said he’s danced in the street before and his favorite move is “sheering the sheep,” in which he moves his arms back and forth in the air.

The young dancer said he enjoys listening to the bands that perform each year.

“I like the music,” he said.

Grand Haven resident Addison Pohl turned into a dancing machine when she met up with her friend, Joy Taylor. Pohl, 3, and Taylor, 4, spun and danced while The Beach Bashers sang.

Pohl said her favorite dance move is twirling.

Grand Haven resident McKenzie Duarte danced in the street with her friends and family to celebrate her 10th birthday. Duarte said it was her first time at the event, and she couldn’t wait to dance.

Duarte’s friend, Shelby Taylor, said she was excited about the music and dancing — but there was one thing she looked forward to the most: “To dance with McKenzie,” she said.
