On June 9th, 2018, the Hampton Roads community will come together at Chrysler Hall for the 2nd annual Virginia Beach SPCA Dancing for Paws dance competition to benefit the animals. This "Dancing with the Stars" style event, featuring Master of Ceremonies Barbara Ciara, is sure to be an evening you will not forget. 

This year, we are welcoming members of our community to participate as our dancing stars. No experience is necessary; we'll pair you with a skilled ballroom dance instructor who will teach you everything you need to know. Take a look at what some of last year's dancers had to say about "Dancing for Paws."  

"I had a blast patricipating in the inaugural Dancing for Paws event to benifit the VBSPCA. My partner, Marie Rants, was top notch, and I loved getting out of my comfort zone and seeing the fruits of my labor on stage at the end." - Todd Corillo, Anchor/Reporter, WTKR.  

"I can't remember the last time I had so much fun! It was an amazing night for all! It was an honor to participate in "Dancing for Paws" in 2017." - James Church, General Manager, Priority Automotive. 

Each dancing star commits to fundraising $2500, and in return receives:
  • 10 dance lessons with a certified ballroom professional
  • 10 tickets to the show for your friends and family
  • 1 full page ad in the Dancing for Paws program
  • Access to the official VIP after party
All fundraising money goes directly to helping Virginia Beach SPCA shelter animals.
