This production was created five years ago by the Utah Ballroom Dance Company, a professional dance troupe featuring some of nation’s top ballroom dance athletes who have performed nationally and internationally. Dancers from the Company will be in residence for a week prior to the show, teaching the local Stars their 90-second routines.
