“It is always such a wonderful feeling when you see the community pull together and support these types of events”, said Ruth Edwards, Executive Director of NOHS.

Not only is it about the voting, but the actual event itself has really expanded from year to year.

“We have planned some new and exciting things this year at the event that will hopefully impress our guests,” said Lorna Robb, owner of Cheek to Cheek Dance Studio. “Each dancer has been working very hard and it’s amazing to see their improvements and passion evolve as we get closer and closer to show time.”

This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Journey,” whether you are learning to dance or just taking each day as it comes.
