Admit it, you watch Dancing With the Stars every now and then. We do, too. 1. Because there’s nothing wrong with guilty pleasures. 2. It’s fun to see celebrities with no dancing skills become polished experts. 3. Better yet, the show is full of drama. Imagine applying the same principle to local drag queens. These dancing queens already have some sweet moves, but teaching them partnered ballroom dance is another story. The seventh annual Dancing With the Bars does just that. And this year's iteration of the competition is bigger than ever, taking place at Celebrity Theatre. Eleven bartenders, drag queens, and various nightlife personalities will compete for the dancing queen glory after vigorously training with a professional dancer over the past few months. Proceeds will be donated to Hero, a local LGBT human rights group.
Shake your groove thang at 440 North 32nd Street, at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 27. All-ages tickets start at $25. Call 602-227-SWAY or visit www.facebook.com/swayevents.
