What to Wear: Black Tie Admired But Not Required!
Westin La Paloma, 3800 East Sunrise Drive
Tucson’s take on the wildly popular television program pairs local “Stars” with Professional dancers who practice with a fervor and then hit the dance floor with a Tucson-style Panache. All of their efforts benefit the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona.
The dance teams aren’t the only ones participating, the audience takes the competitive-edge to the next level as favorites are cheered on and the votes are cast throughout the night. Everyone is kept on the edge of their seats wondering which pair will take first place.
