The team at Wangaratta YMCA, along with major sponsors A1 Tyrepower Wangaratta are thrilled to announce the 4th annual Dancing with the Mastars debutante ball will be held on Saturday 16th November at Oaks Wangaratta, Wangaratta Turf Club.
Last year's ball raised over $10,000 for YMCA Open Doors which has enabled the implementation of 'YMCA Evolve' over the next few weeks. the youth resilience program is targetted at Grade 6 students, helping them to face the challenges of their age and assist them in developing communication and leadership skills.
Trish Storer, Wangaratta YMCA Community Development Officer, says this is one of the many reasons that the organisers are so enthusiastic about the Dancing with the Mastars event.
“The main focus of the event is to raise money to help local people, but another great consequence of the event is seeing a wide range of adults who challenge themselves to learn something new.”
“Each year we see obvious growth in confidence amongst the dancers. That sense of achievement that they are feeling is really quite beautiful.”
"The event offers the unique opportunity for adults to learn to dance through lessons by a professional teacher and to also have some fun while supporting a local charity. The door is open to local couples right now who would like to take up this opportunity. There is no cost to the couples except committing to fill guest tables on the night. We encourage anyone interested to give us a call. Dance training commences once q week from 22 September.
Enquiries about the event can be directed to Trish Storer or Maree Warnett at the YMCA on 57221723, or email Trish Storer firstname.lastname@example.org
