It is also an opportunity for the general public to sign up for workshops to learn how to show off some dance moves to friends and family.

These workshops will be on Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 9 &10) and cost $10 per person.

The event is the last qualifying event for the USA Dance National Championships and will have talented ballroom competitors from 21 states participating.

The competition will begin on Saturday at 9 a.m. and will continue into Sunday.

On Friday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., World Champions Anik Jolicoeur and Alain Doucet will perform some of their famous ballroom dances during a professional ballroom show.

The championships will be awarding more than $4000 in scholarships to the top three couples in designated events, as well as several merchandise prizes. This is an excellent chance to see why ballroom dancing has become such a hit throughout the world.
