Harrisonburg’s 2015 Dancing with the Stars of the ‘Burg is Right Around the Corner!

DWTS Main7

On November 8th, a crowd of ladies and gents will gather at the JMU Grand Ballroom for a classy evening of delicious hors d’oeuvres, an exciting ballroom dance competition, and a fun dance party at the 6th Annual Dancing with the Stars of the ‘Burg. After months of preparations, seven dance couples, consisting of a community celebrity and their dance partner from the Shenandoah Valley chapter of USA Dance, will take the floor and compete for judge and audience votes in a variety of ballroom dance styles. To top it all off, this entertaining evening is all for a great cause – raising money for the Harrisonburg Rockingham Child Daycare Center.

If this sounds like an evening you don’t want to miss, go get that cocktail dress out of the closet or brush off your favorite suit and buy your tickets now!

In the meantime, before the dancing even begins, you can donate money to vote for your favorite team. Every dollar donated counts for one vote.
