SWCC Festival Hosts Ballroom and Barn Dance

ballroom danceThe 2017 Festival of the Arts sponsored by Southwest Virginia Community College will be a whirl of energy as it explores The Diversity of Dance: Its Styles, Rhythms and Music. The dates April 21-30. The Festival is also a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of SWCC.

Two very special events invite those who love to dance, or just observe, to be a part of An Evening at the Ballroom.

This memorable evening will feature professional dancers from the Arthur Murray Studio in Roanoke, VA. The evening includes a buffet meal catered by Basement Bistro at Clinch Valley Medical Center. Dinner will be followed by a Professional Floor Show, a Student Showcase and Relaxed Group Dance Instruction and Guest Dancing.  Joel and Maria Spencer have been teaching ballroom professionally with Arthur Murray for a combined 19 years.

Their success as competitors and instructors has found them becoming sought-after performers and teachers. Joel is Manager of the Arthur Murray Roanoke Studio and Maria is the Dance Director. An additional professional dance pair will also perform and assist with the evening’s dance.

Advance tickets reservations are required for this evening and are $35 per person which include dinner and two complimentary beverages. If you are a fan of Dancing with the Stars, you will love this evening! An Evening at the Ballroom begins at 6:30 p.m. at Tazewell County Country Club. 

Denim, Dine and Dance: An Old Fashioned Barn Dance and Cake Walk is fashioned after street and barn dances of old. Dancing will be to “old time” music. Dance caller, Joan Yates, of Historic Crab Orchard Museum fame, promises that dances will be fun and easy to learn. They will include the Virginia Reel, Gay Gordon, Hat Dance, Patty Cake Polka, Old Susannah, Texas Two Step and others.

Delicious cakes will be won by those who stop on the “lucky spot when the music stops” during the Cake Walk. Keene Family BBQ will provide dinner fare along with beverages from local vendors.

Advance tickets and reservations are also required for this event and are $20 per person which includes dinner and two complimentary beverages.

You can “dress up” for one and “dress down” for the other so don’t delay in getting your tickets for these two memorable events. Visit the Festival site for a full schedule of dates and events. Call 276.964.7348 or 276.964.7347 or for reservations and tickets.
