Dance With A Pro

With every weekend pass comes free “dance tickets” to dance with the pros at specific times - some early evening, some late night.
For every ticket collected by a pro we enhance their salary in return.
It's a WIN-WIN situation, as not everyone feels comfortable asking a Pro to dance, but knowing the pros are all on board makes it much easier!
While not everyone will like the idea, we promise to do our best to make this enjoyable for everyone involved!
