Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Two from the Dynasty Performing on CBS's "Live to Dance".
From the Fortress of Solitude
And what a beautiful day it is. The sun is shining and the depressing inversion of the past few weeks is lifted bringing clean, bright fresh air into the valley. This post celebrates the dancing achievements of two members of our family, Chaz and Brock Bodily. Last week they appeared on Paula Abdul's new show "Live to Dance" on CBS. They danced with "The Vibe". Their performance was spectacular, winning them a place on the show's final and giving them an excellent chance of winning $500,000.00. They are home now for two weeks, then its back to LA for the final competition. They'll need the entire family's support so please take time to watch the next show (not this Tuesday, but next I believe. Look for further updates on the blog) and vote for them when the telephone numbers appear on the screen.
Now, as per tradition, the Relationship Chart so you can identify them;
The video below moves fast and they are filmed from a distance so to help you recognize our relations I've include three stills.
Chaz is in guy in the center with the white tie. I is currently a student at UVU and plans on becoming a sports broadcaster. He loves to dance but sports are his passion.
Bock is in the center of this picture. He is a senior at Pleasant Grove High School, Utah and is earning his Associates Degree from UVU concurrently. In addition to dance, Brock played varsity football for Pleasant Grove High and is an all around great guy.
And now, the video of their performance (there may be a 10 second commercial at the front).
Congratulations to these two outstanding members of our family.
