60th California Star Ball

DanceSport Championships

Dear Friends:

The California Star Ball is celebrating its 60th Anniversary, the longest consecutive running dance competition in the U.S. We cordially invite you to join us once again for a wonderful weekend of dancing.  Your support over the many years has enabled us to make this event one of the most special competitions in the United States.

Three wonderful evenings, in addition to daytime hours, filed with dancing and competitions are in store for spectators and participants alike.

Whether you plan to attend as a studio group, individual competitor or spectator, we look forward to the pleasure of your company.

Best Wishes from the Organizer

Gitte Svendsen
