Rogue Valley Stars Practice Dance Moves

MEDFORD, Ore. — Stars of the Rogue Valley are putting on their dancing shoes for the Fourth Annual Dancing With The Rogue Valley Stars event and tickets are now on sale.

The dance showdown is less than a month away on November 10th. So far, about 12% of the tickets have been sold. Contestants like Pear Blossom Festival President Darcey mann-self have been squeezing in every dance practice possible.

“It’s an awesome opportunity to benefit the Sparrow Clubs and USA Dance, but also just so they can see that ballroom dancing can be a fun thing, that it’s not just old stodgy people dancing, there’s a lot of young people, it’s fun, it’s refreshing, it’s very exciting,” said Darcey Mann-Self

You can see Darcey and the other 11 contestants, including NewsWatch 12’s Erin Maxson and Chris Leone, on November 10th at North Medford High School. The 2 p.m. matinee show is $15. The 7 p.m. evening show is $20.

Money raised benefits sparrow clubs and the youth scholarship program of the Soutehrn Oregon Chapter of USA Dance. You can buy tickets at any Premiere West Branch or online.
