2016 Dancing for the Arts Highlights

dfta stars2

In 2015, Mayor Scott Padgett brought down the house with his hip hop performance. In 2016, Ann Schrader and Bill Dusch battled onstage until the very last minute!! Combined, these and all of the stars raised over $80,000 in the past two years for Cabarrus Arts Council programs. Who will be the Grand Champion this year? Make your votes count!!

Thank you to our 2016 Stars and to Garrett Price for putting together this great highlight film from our 2016 event.
