Although this is a social dance showcase, some of the couples are accomplished competition dancers which will add to the artistry and enjoyment for everyone. This years Showcase once again features  junior, youth and adult social and competition dancers from studios from the Bay through the Central Valley to Sacramento, as well of course as local dancers from Tuolumne County, who in addition to preparing for the Ballroom Competition circuit are performing newly choreographed routines, examples being Jive, Cha Cha, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango and Waltz.

The “Steps To Dance” Studio of Sonora will be well represented with numerous routines @ the 4th Annual Sonora Showcase from students:¬† Lars Johnson, who is the Mail-Room Supervisor for The Union Democrat, Columbia College student Melanie Bruce, Mi-Wuk resident Dr. Marsha McKay, and Evelyn Mainguth (formerly of the Sonora Bridal Store) who is not only a very accomplished dancer, but also an inspiring designer and seamstress for ladies and mens ballroom attire. The dancers representing the “Steps To Dance” Studio collectively received the “TOP STUDIO” award at the prestigious “Pacific Grand Ball 2013”

Join us for an afternoon of elegant dancing; Romantic Waltzes, Jazzy Foxtrots, fast and lively Latin and Rhythm routines performed by dancers of all ages. You will be entertained by youth and adult social and competition dancers ranging in age from around 7 to 70+. Returning this year after performing their entertaining routines in the 2013 Showcase, Sacramento’s Malko Dance Academy & Malko Dance Studio, under the instruction of Sergey Malko, will again bring new life to Sierra Foothills Dance Club’s “Sonora Ballroom Showcase.”
