Countdown to the Big Night! Boca Ballroom Battle Time!

BBB 2017_Boca Mag ad_JUNE

The weeks have become days now for the eight brave souls dancing in this year’s Boca Ballroom Battle. And the premier event of the summer is right around the corner! So I am here to remind you to get your tickets now! Quick! Before it’s sold out!

Things are moving fast, especially for me, one of the 25+ alumni who agreed to dance in the opening number of the event. It’s the 10th anniversary so they are letting us veterans back out on the dance floor (crazy thinking on their part) so we have strapped on the old dance shoes and spend most practices running into each other, kind of like how the band in “Animal House” marched straight into that brick wall.

We only have four practices left and I am sure I’ll be able to finally do that twisty thing at the end. Or not. But this time I don’t care as much; It’s just fun being part of the Ballroom Battle again—and in a group, as opposed to out there all alone on a dance floor the size of Texas.

This year’s dancers already look good; I can’t wait to see them dazzle us with their routines. They have worked for months learning their steps and raising money for the George Snow Scholarship Fund. In a week, the spotlight will be all theirs.

So here’s a big break-a-leg to the following rock stars, and a reminder to the rest of you that this is the DO NOT MISS event of the summer. I’ll see you there.
