Walla Walla "celebrities" will take to the stage at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m. for the third annual “Dancing with the W2 Stars” fundraising event for Valley Residential Services. Local participants will be paired with professional dancers and have a week of rehearsals to learn a ballroom dance routine before the live performance and a judging panel.
In addition to seeing the Walla Walla Stars dance, the professionals teaching the stars will perform excerpts from their award-winning showcase “Ballroom Fever.” Audiences can expect to see breath-taking lifts, hundreds of costumes, theatrical story lines, and a variety of ballroom dance styles, from the sexy Cuban Salsa to the energetic American Swing to the elegant Viennese Waltz.
Valley Residential Services provides personalized support in safe, comfortable, home environments for developmentally disabled individuals, residences for veterans with rehabilitation opportunities, and family assistance services.
Reserved seating tickets ($40 - includes after party) are available online at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
