Scot Bruce brings Elvis Presley to life at Pasadena Ballroom Dance
By John Sollenberger 05/17/2012
For die-hard Elvis fans, “The King” will never die. His music lives on, and tribute acts keep the memory alive. You can catch one of the best in the business this weekend as Scot Bruce and his band bring Elvis’ early years to life at Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association’s Saturday Swing Dance.
The association is a dance school that teaches all forms of social dance. Saturday nights, students can show off what they’ve learned, and newcomers can get a taste of what it’s all about, dancing to the music of top professional bands.
Bruce bears an uncanny resemblance to the young Elvis, so much so that he’s landed video appearances with stars including Faith Hill and Sheryl Crow and has appeared in character on Mark and Brian’s KLOS morning drive-time radio show. He’s also appeared on hit soap operas and TV commercials and has performed with the Jordanaires, Elvis’ original backup singers. Saturday night, you’ll think Elvis lives.

A free dance lesson starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and the music starts at 8 p.m. at the Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association Saturday Swing Dance, at Grace Hall, 73 N. Hill Ave., Pasadena. Admission is $15. Call (626) 799-5689 or visit pasadenaballroomdance.com for information.
