Local entrepreneur and owner of Town Center City Club, Barbara Lewis, is the producer of “Dancing with the Hampton Roads Celebrity Stars”.
Joe Flanagan, a former longtime reporter from WVEC, will be the MC for this year’s event.
“Dancing with the Hampton Roads Celebrity Stars,” the fourth annual fundraising event to benefit local arts groups, will be held August 11th at 7:00 pm at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. Based on the hit TV show, twenty-four local contestants, made up of business leaders, media celebrities, civic and political leaders and other various professionals with limited or no dance experience will be paired with a professional dancer/choreographer to perform before a live audience and professional judges.
All proceeds from the event will benefit local arts groups, including Virginia Musical Theater, The Governors School for the Arts and others.
Limited tickets for the event are currently on sale for a $50.00 tax-deductable donation and are available on this website soon and from the Contestants and local ballroom Studios.
