Minnesota Ballet Presents, the 9’th Annual Celebrity Dance Challenge
The Minnesota Ballet has gathered up some gutsy Northland Celebrities to show off their dancing talents to help raise money for the Ballet, with the annual Dance Challenge.
I know a number of people who have participated in this, and they have all said it was one of the greatest experiences they had ever had, and it was a lot of work. If you think about it many of us don't realize how physical a dance routine can be, plus of course having to get in synch with your partner, and of course remember all your steps! :)
Eleven Northland celebrities will pair with Minnesota Ballet professional dancers to compete in the ninth annual Celebrity Dance Challenge 7:30 p.m. Thursday, February 5, at Marshall School’s Fregeau Auditorium, 1215 Rice Lake Rd., in Duluth. Some of the dances that will be highlighted this year are: The Texas two-step, Latin-jazz fusion, and “dance evolution” make their first appearance in the challenge, in addition to styles from slinky rhumba to breathless tango to high-energy jitterbug and Lindy hop.
