Join us for an exhilarating evening of dance!
Voices Against Violence in partnership with Utah Ballroom Dance Company present:
Dancing with the Stars of Twin Falls!
8:00pm Friday, November 30th @ The Orpheum
Like the television program, six Stars of Twin Falls have been chosen to participate in the dance competition. The stars are paired with a professional dancer 1 week prior to the competition. During that week, the Stars of Twin Falls practice a dance routine with their personal instructor in preparation of the event at the end of the week. Utah Ballroom Dance Company costume and prepare dancers for the event.
The Stars of Twin Falls are also asked to set a personal fundraising goal to benefit Voices Against Violence. Dancers have 6-8 weeks prior to the competition to reach their goal. On Friday November 30th, the Stars of Twin Falls will perform their routine with their professional partners at The Orpheum with hopes of winning the Mirror Ball Trophy.
