Affinia Healthcare Starburst Gala and The STIFEL Theater

     On September 29, 2018, the Prestige Dancers performed to a crowd of 300 for the Affinia Healthcare’s Starburst Gala at the STIFEL Theater (Peabody Opera House).  A fun time was had by all.  The guests were so thrilled with the dance performances that they recorded most of the dances and 2 beginner programs sold quickly in the live auction following the dancing.  For the performers, it was an amazing experience to perform on a stage that has hosted so many stars of the entertainment world and in a theater that is iconic for St. Louis.  The Prestige Ballroom Dancers performed Tango, Cha Cha, Waltz, Rumba,Viennese Waltz, and Foxtrot.  Our studio ham, Matt Morgan, was the emcee for the performances.  In order not to miss even the smallest opportunity to sing in the STIFEL Theater, Catherine had to belt out a few measures from an opera!
