It’s time for our biggest fundraiser of the year!
A glamorous night of philanthropy, ballroom, and community.

Saturday, May 11, 2024

6:00pm at Truckee Community Recreation Center

Doors open at 6:00pm.  Show starts promptly at 7:00pm.

Proceeds from this event support young dancers and performers in Truckee-Tahoe as well as our dance-centric community wellness programs.


Similar to the Dancing with the Stars TV show, eight of our local Sierra Stars will be partnered with a professional dancer to perform a captivating ballroom routine. A boisterous local judging panel joins in the entertainment and one Star will take home the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

The event is rounded out by our Apps for the Arts noshing stations where local restaurants and caterers provide delectable nibbles. A cash bar will be serving local beer and wine.

The second act features the Utah Ballroom Dance Company performing their sensational national-touring stage show!
