Ballroom Dance Ocala Florida Fun Mini Match Competition

Sun 1/19, 10 am-6 pm. In its seventh year, the Florida Fun Mini Match competition stiffened in 2019, with almost 200% growth in competitor numbers from last year. Dancers of all ages competed in waltz, tango, foxtrot, salsa and two step from the early afternoon into the evening for a chance to be 1st place in their heat and win fabulous prizes. At the end of the night, there was a special performance by celebrity judges Ekaterina Derevleva and Aleksei Alekseev, complete with flashy costumes, fancy steps, and a buzzing flare all their own. The 2019 event was the most successful mini match to date, with over 275 attendees and over 140 heats. We look forward to another great year in 2020. Proceeds benefit the Marion Therapeutic Riding Association and help to raise awareness for their services, possible through competitor and spectator attendance, event sponsors and donors to our silent auction. The support of the dance community in North Central Florida is ... Circle Square Cultural Center, 8395 SW 80 Street, Ocala, 34481. Eileen Parris, 352-331-2742.

We are also excited to bring back our incredible entertainment, The Fabulous Gemtones featuring Josie and Mikey.

This year, in addition to the UF Health Pals Thrive Program, we will be supporting two additional charities: PACE Center for Girls and Aces in Motion! We have chosen these charities because both have unique and successful ways for reaching and assisting Gainesville’s youth. Please consider supporting Dancing Through the Decades by sponsoring this event. We know ch ... Valley View at Santa Fe River Ranch, 26001 NW 122 Street, Alachua, 32615. Davila, 352-327-3072.
