Local dance troupe may make #039;America#039;s Funniest Home Videos#039;

Artist Andy Warhol once predicted that someday, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes.

If this is true, some area residents will get their place in the sun this weekend - but they have to be prepared for the guffaws that might accompany the spotlight.

The television program," America's Funniest Home Videos" will feature a footage taped two years ago of a Yvonne DeKay School of Dance performance.

DeKay recalled that while performing "Santa's version of

the Nutcracker" two years ago at Ironton High School, what should have been a sweet holiday scene turned comedic.

"The reindeer tipped the sled over. A rope got caught and when the they (students dressed as reindeer) tried to get it loose they jerked hard and Santa flipped out," DeKay said. "People would ask me 'why don't you send that in to the funniest home videos show?'"

She did. Wednesday she received a telephone call from producers in California, alerting her that her home video would be featured on the Sunday edition of the program.

"America's Funniest Home Videos" airs at 7 p.m. Sunday on WCHS TV.
