Dance With A Pro

Asking a Pro to dance can be incredibly intimidating for some people.  And for our staff, coming out to social dance can be a big physical commitment, they often don't get a second to stop or breathe!

So at all SS Production events, we have set "Pro-Ticket Dance" slots in the schedule (early evening and later at night) andwe give two free tickets to all weekend pass holders.   This means that you are free, and encouraged to ask any Pro to dance during these times - they will have flashing lights on to identify themselves as available - without fear of rejection or inconvenience to them.  The Pros are compensated by us for each ticket they collect, and you are able to purchase more tickets for just $3 if you want more dances with your favorite Pros.  It's a WIN-WIN.
