Some of the top ballroom dancers in the world are set to twirl, chasse and hop this weekend as part of the Superstars of Ballroom show, which draws top talent from around the world.

They will come together at the Westchester Broadway Theatre to present Argentine Tango, cha cha, rhumba, samba, paso doble, mambo, jive, waltz, quickstep, foxtrot and Viennese waltz. Among the performers will be Charlie and Emily Roberts, who are known on the international stage for their award-winning ballroom dance, including two World Amateur Smooth Champions honors, and many national awards, as well. Locally, they teach at the Metropolitan Dance Center in Stamford.
