Back by popular demand, six Gorge Stars will compete for your votes at this mid-winter fund raiser. Similar to the reality TV dance show, contestants learn a routine prior to show time. But in this show, the competitors are our friends and neighbors from the gorge area. Paired with a professional dancer from the Utah Ballroom Dance Co., they spend many hours practicing their routines. Video highlights of the rehearsals are included in the program when the beautifully costumed contestants perform for our concert.
An entertaining judging-panel of locals scores each team at the end of the competition. Audience votes are then tallied to determine who wins the beautiful mirrored trophy. While the ballots are being tallied, the Utah Dance Co. entertains with a professional showcase featuring a variety of highly technical dancing.
This is a fundraiser for the Mid-Columbia Community Concert Association and therefore is not included in the series of 5 regular season performances.
Tickets are also available at Klindt’s Bookstore, Lines of Designs and The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce.
