Attendees will be greeted at the door by dance instructors from University of Delaware Ballroom Dance Team, Tango Lewes, Dance Moves & Manners, and additional local dance stars. Interspersed throughout the evening with music provided by DJ Keith will be the occasional instruction by our dance instructors.
Working with the Jazz Festival, Dance Moves and Manners and Tango Lewes were enlisted to help with the project. Both organizations have helped to bring the idea of a Ballroom Community Dance to reality. Enlisting the help of talented local dance instructors and getting the Ballroom, Latin, and Argentine Tango communities together we have been able to produce an event that everyone will enjoy.
DJ Keith will also provide the music playing Salsa – Swing – Foxtrot – Rumba – Argentine Tango – Bachata and more.
Proceeds from "Dancing for the Cure • Ballroom Community Dance" will benefit The Tunnell Cancer Center, as well as the St. Jude’s Food Pantry that provides food for hundreds of needy families in the community. The committee will also donate funds to Tango Lewes, an all-volunteer, non-profit community of Argentine Tango Dancers. Tango Lewes is committed to providing affordable access to instructions and this funding will go towards bringing nationally known instructors to the area to increase knowledge and skill in this artistic dance.
