“Last year’s event was a tremendous success,” said Amy Donohue, WEF co-president. “It is a fun night out for the adults, and a wonderful opportunity to support the WEF grant program.  It will once again be a terrific event; all are welcome to attend!”

Avalon Dance & Fitness and Fred Astaire instructors will work with the stars on a rigorous practice schedule right up to the event. Professional dancers from various studios and dance organizations will serve as judges. The winners will be announced at the end of the event.
