Teen Masquerade Ball to be at the Blount County Public Library

MARYVILLE, TN  (July 16, 2012)   Teens, plan now to participate in the Realms of Darkness Masquerade Ball at the Blount County Public Library.  Whether you’re a novice or an expert dancer, don’t worry because JW Becker, with Champion Ballroom of Knoxville, will be leading a ballroom dance class.

            The Masquerade Ball, the grand finale for this year’s summer reading program, “Own the Night,” will be on Saturday, July 21, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the library.

            Teens can dress like a favorite book character—preferably of a spooky variety—or just in fancy, fun dance clothes!

            In addition, teens will be able to make masks for the masquerade ball, of course!  Free food will be available.  And there will be announcements of winners of various contests from the teen summer reading program.

                With more than eight years’ experience, JW Becker has learned how to help people new to dance to enjoy what they learn and make the journey into the world of dance a fulfilling one. JW has also been part of Knoxville’s own Dancing With The Stars this year with Missy Kane, a benefit for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, and is glad to share his abilities for such a good cause.

            Champion Ballroom Center is committed to bringing the excitement and joy of dance to everyone.

Free and open to the public, the program is at the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville.
