Well-known individuals from three area communities will show off their best dance moves at a new charity dancing competition in Eatonia early in November.

Ballroom Blitz will feature seven local celebrities and their dance partners competing at the Eatonia Community Hall on Nov. 4. They could win a grand prize of $5,000, to be donated to a charity of their choice.

The  doors open at 7 p.m. and the dancing starts at 8 p.m. on Nov. 4.

The event is sold out but the general public can support participants by online voting. Visit www.ballroomblitzeatonia.myevent.com for information and to cast votes for the participants.

Kim Becker, a spokesperson for the event, said she had an idea to do a Dancing with the Stars style event about two years ago but the idea didn’t take off. When she became a member of the Eatonia Centennial Committee, she shared the idea with the chairperson, Lindsay Larock.
