Dear Friends:

And just like that, another competition comes to a close.  A Big Thank you to everyone so much for making the 59th California Star Ball a success.  What an incredibly talented group of dancers of all ages and enthusiastic spectators.  We could not do this without you.

Thanks to all our adjudicators, music, video and photography Vendors and a special thanks to all our staff behind the scene.

We also hope you mark your calendar for our very special diamond anniversary next year, November 27 thru 29, 2020.  Help us make next year the best year yet.

Wishing all of you a very merry holiday season filled with love, joy and dancing.
