‘Dancing With Your Stars’ coming to BPAC on April 14

March 30, 2018

With rave reviews from last year’s show, “Dancing With Your Stars” is returning to the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center stage on April 14 at 7:30 p.m. for a show that promises to be even better than last year’s production.

This concert will be an entertainment extravaganza of music, dancing, phenomenal costumes and a stunning stage that will feature the music of Hollywood movies. This show has been enthusiastically received for the past four seasons and many are looking forward to the return of the Utah Ballroom Dance Company to crown the 2018 winner. The 12-member Utah Ballroom Dance Company is based in Corvallis, Oregon and is a professional dance troupe that presents shows to communities throughout the U.S. The dancers will be in Blackfoot to rehearse the specialty numbers with six local celebrities: Julie Van Orden, Echo Marshall, Joni Merrick, Cynthia Bewley, Dennis Parker, Mark Evans, Jared Neff and LaMar Hager. The eight well-known community members will be paired with the professional dancers to each learn a dance routine in just one week.

The hilarious judging panel will be composed of three local judges who will give comments and dancing advice. The audience has the final say as they vote for their favorite local stars, and the winner receives the highly coveted mirror ball trophy. Last year’s winner, Tyson Shay, will be featured in a specialty dance before he passes the trophy on to this year’s winner.

Tickets for the concert are $20, $15 and $10. Group rates are also available for 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased online at blackfootpac.com, by calling the BPAC at 208-0317-5508 or at the door the night of the show.
