Feel your toes start to tap of their own accord, your shoulders shimmy, and your hips subtly gyrate as you thrill at the sights of world-championship-level ballroom dance. Today's side deal gets you a seat to Champions of the Dance for $23, giving you an up-close-and-personal view of the masterful footwork and flawless frame of the best ballroom and Latin dancers to grace a hardwood floor (tickets are in balcony rows 5-12). See men in tailcoats glide millimeters above the floor with the grace of Fred Astaire; marvel at the endless gams, garish gowns, and glamorous eyelashes on women who move backward in heels more gracefully than of the rest of us gracefully ordering a half-pound of ground chuck from the meat counter in Converse All-Stars.
These world champions of waltz, foxtrot, rumba, cha-cha, and jive will take the stage, wowing you with razor-sharp spins, spine-defying dips, and Cuban hip motion that will put your eyes out. See what happens when the pros from Dancing With The Stars dance with other professionals or disgraced politicians who don't actually know how to dance. The incalculable force generated by these binary-star pairings will blow out your pocket-watch.
Champions of the Dance takes place Friday, October 30, at 8 p.m. at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, located 30 minutes from downtown Boston.
