LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles dance instructor celebrates a big anniversary, a 60-year legacy of teaching.

Glenda Moss is known by her students as tough, and yet a motivator.

She's taught dance for six decades and is celebrating her big anniversary with a show.

"When I hit the 50th year, I never dreamed I'd be doing 60 years," said Moss.

It's not just Moss' years of teaching that make her special, but also the way she teaches.

She doesn't allow crying in her studio, you know if you cry you're out the door," said dancer Kristen Hannaman.

Ages three to adult are dancing in Moss' diamond jubilee show.

Moss' anniversary show is June 15th at 8 p.m. in the Civic Center's Rosa Hart Theatre.

"I would really like for the people of Lake Charles to see what we're offering and for them to enjoy and share the moment with me of 60 years," said Moss.

The show will celebrate all of the decades of dance that Moss has done.

Tickets cost 11-dollars at the door. Proceeds go to St. Jude Research Hospital and scholarships for junior and senior dancers.

    By sunset this evening the temperatures will start to go down and rain will come to an end. Overnight we will be left with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
