Similar to the popular TV show, each contestant will each be paired with a professional from the Utah Ballroom Dance Company to learn a ballroom dance routine in one week. On January 17, they will compete on the Numerica PAC stage before a live audience and panel of local judges: Wenatchee High School’s BRIAN HIGGINS, The Community Foundation of NCW’s BETH STIPE and possibly Eastmont High School’s LANCE NOELL, – after which the audience will vote for the winner of the Mirror Ball Trophy. The evening will also showcase scintillating dance numbers from the Utah Ballroom Dance Company professionals themselves. This event is supported by KOHO 101 and Julie Davis.
