LIGHT ON THEIR FEET — A celebrity couple from Dancing With the AV Stars 2017 dances. This year’s event is scheduled to take place on Feb. 16 at the Performing Arts Theatre at Antelope Valley College.

LANCASTER — Get out your dancing shoes and come watch the cel­eb­rities shine at the Dan­cing With the AV Stars 2019 All Star Seas­on on Feb. 16 at the Per­forming Arts Theatre at Antelope Val­ley College, 3041 West Ave. K.

In this eighth annual event, Antelope Valley’s celebrity seven will pair up with the professionals to dance the night away for a good cause.

Antelope Valley cel­eb­rities Ty Godde, Lupe Right­meyer, Dylan Finch, Nancy Scott, Michael Argo, Vanessa Caron and Heath­er Hough will go head-to-head in this star-studded competition.

Opportunities will occur throughout the even­ing to purchase votes for your favorite duo. The cost is $1 per vote.

“The evening of Feb. 16, there will be something for everyone including spe­cial performances and time to cheer on, watch, and vote for the couples for the Dancing with the AV Stars as they compete for the trophy,” artistic director Lisa Sandoval said.

There also will be spe­cial performances through­out the course of the evening by pro­fes­sional dancers, jazz, Latin, and hip hop per­form­ers, Dance Force Youth Ballroom students, and special guest singers, according to Sandoval.

A cash bar will be avail­able beginning at 6 p.m. with entertainment and performances from 7 to 10 p.m.

Red carpet ar­rivals begin at 6:15 p.m.

Sponsored by the USA Dance AV Chapter, a non­prof­it established in 2004 to promote partner dan­cing for individuals, the fund­raiser will help sup­­port the chapter’s three-day Dan­cing For Health event. Spec­if­ic­ally, the funds will go tow­ard the Dance Force Youth Ball­room Program for stu­dents fourth grade through high school, which culminates at the 15th annual High Desert Dance Classic dance con­ven­tion.

The convention, which is a community-based event for youth, col­lege students, ad­ults, and act­­ive se­niors, is con­ducted at the Antelope Val­ley Col­lege the week­end of March 8-10 (www.highdesertdanceclassic.com). It offers com­pe­ti­tions, dance workshops for all levels and per­form­ances.
