We are thrilled to announce our dancers for the 2018 Virginia Beach SPCA Dancing for Paws event! We have news anchors, fitness gurus, comedians, a restaurateur, and even some VBSPCA employees, all willing to take the stage and cut a rug to benefit the animals. We have twenty-four dance contestants, and each has been partnered with a professional dancer who has shown them the moves and helped prepare their routines. Then, on Saturday, June 9th, they’ll dance the night away, all in hopes of winning the famed mirror ball trophy. This ‘Dancing with the Stars’ style dance competition takes place at Chrysler Hall, with the fabulous Barbara Ciara as Master of Ceremonies.

Dancing for Paws was one of the most talked about events of our 2017 schedule, and we can’t wait to see what this year brings. Tickets are on sale now, so mark your calendars and get ready for a night to remember. And, if the event isn’t exciting enough on it’s own, all event proceeds benefit the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA.

Now, without further ado, we present to you our 2018 Dancing for Paws cast!
