“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.
