Saturday, October 19th is the date for Champion Ballroom dancers and their guests to get in touch with their "spooky" side at the 23rd Annual Showcase. Celebrate the season and enjoy a day of dancing while the boys and "ghouls" thrill you with their dance moves.
Showcase is actually two events combined into one fabulous, day-long celebration of dance.
The first part of the day is held "competition style." Dancers participate in "heats" of several couples at a time. Each student dances with his or her instructor. The music plays and couples dance showing what steps they've learned at their level. A judge gives each student a score based on their proficiency. Every student receives a written evaluation of each
freestyle heat performed.
The evening is a fabulously "ghoulish" show put on by Champion Ballroom's staff of professional dancers. Owner Mary Murphy will be on hand to meet the public, and to host the event. The Professional Show often includes cast members from "So You Think You Can Dance." Many of the most famous stars in the world of dance turn out to make this an event where you can meet as well as dance with the stars.
