It will be a celebration of dance and culture like Salmon Arm has never seen before as local celebrities unleash their hidden dance talents to compete for four trophies – a runner up and overall winner in two categories. Who wins is decided by a combination of votes between the judges and audience members. It’s about recognizing that everyone has talent, but it stays hidden unless an opportunity is presented for that talent to blossom. This event promises to be that opportunity. For the audience it will be an evening of fun, laughter, good food, drink, great company and exciting entertainment.
