‘Dancing with The Sierra Stars’ set for Saturday at Squaw Valley

TRUCKEE, Calif. — InnerRhythms Dance Centre will present “Dancing with The Sierra Stars” this weekend.

Just like the TV show “Dancing with The Stars,” six local “stars” will be paired with professional dancers from The Utah Ballroom Dance Company to learn a ballroom dance routine.

Our 2015 dancing stars will include Tom Farina, Dr. Rob Leri, Sherry McConkey, Laura Mohun, Jamie Pombo and Kane Schaller. Rich Molsby, Ted Owens, and Brinn Talbot will serve as distinguished judges.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for the Saturday, April 18, show at the Olympic Village Lodge at Squaw Valley. Show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $75.

Tickets are available at InnerRhythms, BrownPaperTickets.com, or at the door.

In a professionally produced show, the stars will perform their individual ballroom dances. The show will also include video highlights of the rehearsal process, a fun local judging panel, a performance by InnerRhythms’ dance companies, and one community dance number choreographed by the visiting artists — all adding up to a unique, community centered experience.

The audience gets to vote for the winner, and one of our local stars will take home the coveted mirror ball trophy.

The second half of the show will feature their professional partners performing from their nationally touring ballroom dance stage show.

As a nonprofit organization, InnerRhythms’ mission is to use the power of dance and music to cultivate life skills in our youth, promote global stewardship and create an everlasting passion for the arts in the communities we serve.

We also have a policy that no one who wants to dance gets turned away. As a result, last year alone we awarded over $18,000 in scholarship and work trade agreements.
