Louisiana Ballroom Dancing: Putting On The Glitz
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

384px-ballroom_dance_exhibitionDo you want to dance?

If so, then buy your tickets for the “Glitzy Dance” sponsored by USA Dance #5031, Louisiana Gumbo, celebrating its 11th anniversary.  This is a benefit dance for its Youth Dance Scholarship and Chapter Ballroom Activities Programs.  The “Glitzy Dance” is scheduled for Sunday October 17 at the Jefferson Orleans North, 2600 Edenborn Ave. in Metairie.

This “Putting on the Glitz” celebration includes Music by Encore Orchestra, a catered Buffet, a silent auction raffle and celebrity dancers.  Join ballroom dancers throughout the state for this breathtaking special occasion.

A signed and numbered print of the Championship LSU football team by Jack Jaubert will be the special auctioned item.  Jaubert is the official team artist.

Also, take a chance and "pay to dance" with the "celebrity" dancers and instructors.


The celebrity dancers include Sterling Sightler and Jim Crowel, Melanie and Richard Stewart, Jessie Gellrich and Carrie Delorge, Maurice Allen and Phyllis Nola, Stela and Stephan Howard.

Participating instructors are Joe Vaughn, Corey Fouchi, Margaret Lancaster, Darlene Allen and Aaron Smith.

While you are not dancing, bid on the dance lesson packages from the instructors during the silent auction and watch (with envy) the celebrity dancer couples perform an exhibition followed by the finale-- a majestic Viennese Waltz.

Tickets are $25/person.  Call Ruby Shrieves at 504-368-9597 or Jennifer Vaughn at 504 258-2220 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
