Join us for a Dancing with the Stars style competition called Dancing for Paws on Saturday, June 10th at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the event kicks off at 7:00 p.m.


We have several local professionals and celebrities willing to show off their moves for homeless pets. We have World Champion Professionals paired with these folks for what promises to be a wonderful evening. Barbara Ciara is our Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening.


There will be eight trophies awarded: Best Male and Best Female – Beginner, Best Male and Female – Experienced for both Ballroom and Latin Categories.


And, since it’s all about the animals, the Virginia Beach SPCA will have adoptable cats and dogs at the event and involved in the show!
