The tension builds as the clock ticks toward the Feb. 9, 2013, Dancing With the Geneva Stars event.
Presented here are photos from lessons and practice routines of JUSTIN & KATLYN EGGAR, who no doubt consumed plenty of YOLO to keep up with the pace of practice.
This year's DWGS takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 9 at Eagle Brook Country Club. Open seating is $40 per guest, which includes hors d’oeuvres, dessert and cash bar and an evening of great entertainment.
The easiest way for you to make a reservation and vote is to go directly to the Dancing With the Geneva Stars website www.genevarts.org.
Voting will continue until Feb. 8. One dollar counts as one vote.
Every year, the event has sold out, so make your reservations early. The committee promises an evening of fun-filled entertainment with 12 local celebrities competing for your votes.
This year, all four past champion teams will join together for a never-before-seen encore dance choreographed by Linda Cunningham, founder and artistic director of State Street Dance Studio.
Also new this year is the chance to win an iPad. For $10, you have a chance to play the heads-tails game and go home a winner. And, finally, to end the evening of entertainment, there will be a twist dance-off followed by an evening of open dance.
There is a limit of 370 ticket reservations available. Ticket price is $40 for open seating, which includes hors d'oeuvres, dessert and an evening of fun entertainment. A cash bar is also available.
