Dancing with our Stars is the largest annual fundraiser for The Center for the Arts, and each star contestant has committed not only to dance their heart out, but to also raise money for The Center.

The money raised will help fund initiatives such as The Center’s Youth Arts education programs, which include free Family Fun Day and provide valuable scholarships to for Summer Camps and access to after-school arts programming.

The Center is able to put on over 120 performances to almost 35,000 patrons annually and has 7,500 walk through its doors each year.

Each team will compete Saturday, Aug. 26, at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Grass Valley.
