The Graham County Chamber of Commerce Invites You!
Six of our local celebrities are partnered with a professional dancer to learn a 90-second ballroom dance routine. Over the course of a week our celebrities will refine their skills as they prepare to compete onstage in front of a live audience. At the end of the week, we add in costumes, video highlights and a hilarious local judging panel for a show that our community will absolutely love. During this interactive show, you will laugh, cheer, sing, and laugh some more. The best part is the AUDIENCE votes for who will win and take home the coveted mirror ball trophy.
With the surge in popularity of ballroom dance in pop culture, Mark Lowes and Marlayna Sheeran, founders of the Utah Ballroom Dance Company (UBDC), set out to create a touring show that would capitalize on this popularity. Reality dance competition shows are drawing in audience members to not only watch their favorite stars dance but also get to vote for them and determine their fate.
This company features some of nation's top ballroom dance athletes who have performed nationally and internationally receiving numerous accolades and awards such as the coveted U.S. National Formation Championships.
