Dancing for the Arts History

In 2015, Mayor Scott Padgett brought down the house with his hip hop performance. In 2016, Ann Schrader and Bill Dusch battled onstage for the top prize until the very last minute!! Ann became DFTA's Grand Champion. Bill walked away a winner, too as Concord's new mayor. In 2017, Joan Davis glided across the stage, collecting the top title in front of an adoring audience.

Now in its fourth season, Dancing for the Arts has earned its place as an eagerly anticipated annual event. A celebration of the arts and the community we love, we're grateful for the support of the dozens of Stars and Professionals who take the time and effort to entertain for a good cause.
