WARSAW — A five-year haiutus has apparently caused a strong demand for Saturday night’s return of Dancing with the Stars for Charity.

The event features nine local dance couples competing in a contest similar to the reknowned televison show.

Tonight’s competition at the Performing Arts Center at Warsaw Community High School starts at 7:30 p.m.

While  advanced ticket sales have been strong, organizer of the event, Programming Director Kris Lake said tickets will still be availble at the door tonight.

Tickets are priced at $25 for adults and $15 for students.

All of the proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to supporting 11 local charities.

Tickets may be reserved online at, or by calling the box office at (574) 371-5040.

Among the selected beneficiaries are Joe’s Kids, Magical Meadows, Combined Community Services, Kosciusko Community Trap Neuter Return, Cardinal Services, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts, CASA of Kosciusko County, and Kate’s Kart. The WCHS Dance Department and Warsaw Performing Arts Center will also receive a portion of the proceeds. 

The nine couples have been practicing for weeks.

“Dancing with the Stars for Charity” embodies the true essence of community collaboration, as individuals from various backgrounds come together to champion causes dear to their hearts.
