Aurora Theatre has teamed up with stunning events facility 550 Trackside and Gwinnett”s hottest partner dance company, All About Ballroom to create a brand-new series, Aurora Dance Nights.

The popularity of dancing is at an all-time high. Top rated TV shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance are inspiring folks to get off of the couch and hop onto the dance floor.

Take a trip down memory lane for retro fun as this new series kicks off July 16 at 8 p.m. with a 50″s Sock Hop. Live music is provided by The Carwoods, a hip trio bringing the spirit of some good old rock and roll into today with their swinging renditions of Elvis, Bill Haley, Chubby Checker and more. Each dance night will feature lessons with expert Kathy Casper and the great folks from All About Ballroom.

Aurora Dance Nights will be held at 550 Trackside, just off the Lawrenceville square, right across for the old Lawrenceville train depot. This gorgeous event facility contains granite walls, archways and original wood, all restored to their natural beauty. Guests can purchase fresh crepes from American Crepe and there will be a selection of beer, wine and other soft drinks.

Tickets are $18 per person and parking is free. Tickets are available through the Aurora Theatre Box Office at 678-226-6222 or visit www.auroratheatre.com.

Upcoming Aurora Dance Nights include a Salsa Night featuring Havana Son on September 22, a Big Band Night featuring the Metro Jazz Club next January 28 and a Prom on April 27. Dancing is a great night out. It is fun, romantic and great exercise. Make the night special by attending Aurora Dance Nights.
