The ninth annual ballroom dance marathon will take place November 2-4 at The Exceptional Foundation of Homewood. This event offers seasoned dancers a chance to share their skills and more inexperienced dancers a chance to learn some new footwork.
Friday and Saturday night will feature dances with live music from The Classics and Lady & the Tramps. Saturday will feature six hours of workshops with 18 different dance classes to choose from. The marathon will conclude Sunday with a new event where both amateur and experienced dancers will have the chance to face off against one another.
Food will be offered at both dances, and Carrabba’s Italian Grill will cater lunch during Saturday’s workshops.
The event will also offer dance vendors as well as a consignment shop for dancewear that has been popular in the past.
Tickets for the entire weekend are $85, with each dance being $15 admission. Saturday’s workshops will cost $65. The dance-off on Sunday is free for spectators and $10 each for those hoping to compete.
Proceeds will go to The Exceptional Foundation of Homewood, an organization dedicated to providing a community to physically and mentally disabled individuals, as well as offering them various life-enhancing activities through a recreational facility.
