This is the third annual production with past years being sellout shows. What a great evening of fun and entertainment. Audience members are still talking about what talent, entertainment and fun they’ve enjoyed the past two shows.

Masters of Ceremonies: Principal Darrin Nichols of Sweetwater Primary School and Superintendant Dr. Melanie Miller from Sweetwater City Schools will introduce each couple to the judges and interview the performers about all the rehearsals and hard work invested into this program.

Judges for the evening are Ivan Worrell – Legacy Performing Arts, Brandi Smith – Jr. High and Nancy Gatchel – Primary School. Each of these judges has experience in performance, singing, stage or dance. Locals are guaranteed to enjoy their comments and score for each couple. The judges have also been assisting each couple in floor craft and how to sell their piece to the audience. Audience members will have an opportunity to vote during intermission.

2012 Stars are Dr. Kenny Archer, Victor Upton, Scott Wilson, Jason Roy, Hau No, Richard Allen, Sam Moser, Houston Crabtree, Jessica Morgan, Jaclyn Cleveland, Katie Hatfield, Teresa Mashburn, Aliceson Bowman, Heather Shamblin, Heather Kirkland and Lauren Kirkland.

2012 Professionals & Choreographers are from Salt & Light Studios, Sweetwater. Hours of training and choreography have gone in the making of this show. Stars have sacrificed free time, work time and family time, not to mention the body aches and pains to entertain to maximum ability of each couple. Styles include Swing, Charleston, Tap, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Foxtrot, Freestyle, Rumba and Broadway. A variety of music is set to please the ear for the competition. Some music pieces are from Dean Martin, Pirates, Elvis, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis and James Brown.

Last year’s stars are coming back for a group performance to entertain after the competition.

Last year the previous stars performed “Thriller” as the never dying stars. Come and enjoy this year’s surprise number featuring last year’s stars. Expect a special twist that makes this number unique! Weeks of “secret rehearsals” and sworn secrecy will get an absolute standing ovation for superb entertainment.

The Infamous Valley Boys are returning once again to be a special part of the entertainment. The group for 2012 is Rusty Vineyard, Dominic Pitarro, Dennis Kirkland, Jason Roy, Rodney Bibee and Russell Hicks. Two years ago the Valley Boys entertained with “The Village People doing YMCA” and last year the boys did “The Evolution of Dance.” Come see what they have in store for you this year!
