Special to The PREVIEW
Even the kiddos at Seeds of Learning are enthusiastically breaking out their dance moves in anticipation of Dancing with the Pagosa Stars.
Our eight fabulous local stars will be revealed in next week’s edition of The PREVIEW and on Seeds’ website: http://growingseeds.org/dwtps-stars/.
Right now, you can check out our Seeds Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Dancingstarspagosa/ for bios of the amazing coaches and choreographers who have agreed to make our stars shine. Then, on May 3, we will add the bios of our brave, competitive stars so you can decide who you want to vote for.
A social, held at the beautiful home of Lisa and Dwight Peters, was the perfect place for the stars and their coaches to meet and get acquainted. Guests listened intently as Lisa, entertainment chair for the event, guided stars through dates for lessons, plans for creation of videos and all the small details that will make this a fun experience for everyone. The highlight of the evening was when Leslie Carlson, the show choreographer, paired excited stars and coaches for their dance.
Dancing with the Pagosa Stars will be held at 6 p.m. on July 14 at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Tickets for this fun, new event will go on sale at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 4. The ticket price is $125 when paying with cash or check and $128.50 if paying with a credit card. Ticket prices include the dance competition, dinner, drink tickets and open audience dancing while winner votes are tallied.
To reserve producer tables (seating eight) or individual tickets, call Lisa at (281) 650-0875 or Dee McPeek at (970) 317-3224, beginning May 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. No tickets will be available for purchase at Seeds of Learning. Tickets will be sold on a first-paid basis.
There has been a great deal of early interest in this event. Because of their amazing contributions, stars are guaranteed some tables to fill, so remaining seats for sale are limited. We expect to sell out quickly, so call early on May 4 for your reservations.
Have you guessed who our stars are? Watch next week for their debut and call early on May 4 for your seats to this unique new Pagosa Spring event to raise funds for educating our at-risk preschoolers.
