Saturday, July 7, 2012 Shasta Women’s Refuge is presenting Dancing with the Stars, Shasta County Style at 7 PM at Cascade Theater. Modeled after the popular reality TV show on ABC, the Shasta County version features six community members who are matched up with experienced dancers. The six couples dance and audience members vote with their wallets. At the end of the evening, the top vote-getting couple is crowned the people’s champion. The three-member judging panel selects the couple worthy of the “judge’s choice” award. Tickets are $10-20.
