Drum roll, please. The George Snow Scholarship Fund just announced the fearless eight community leaders who will dance at the Ninth Annual Boca’s Ballroom Battle August 20 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
This highly anticipated event—the highlight of the summer—is patterned after the “Dancing with the Stars” television blockbuster, and pairs Boca brave hearts with professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Boca who learn a choreographed routine in a matter of months—and then perform it in front of 750 of their closest friends and neighbors.
Those of us who have done it know what it takes—and it is not for the faint of heart.
Each dancer raises money that benefits the good work The Foundation does in awarding scholarships to kids who really need them, which makes all the angst worth it in the end.
So here they are, our intrepid dancers of 2016. We wish them all the best and we’ll be there cheering them on! (P.S. It’s never too early to sign up for a table or sponsorship—visit ballroombattle.com for details.)
