At the Galaxy Dance Festival, some of the best ballroom dancers in the galaxy—or, at least in the greater Phoenix area—come to the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa to compete on the dance floor. This year, the event is slated to take place from Thursday, September 15 to Sunday, September 18, kicking off bright and early at 8 a.m. on Thursday.
If you'd like to come watch while a panel of professional judges assesses each individual or couple of dancers, snag a ticket to one of the sessions. On Thursday, expect to see country and western dancing in the morning, along with American smooth and international Latin dancing in the evening. On Friday and Saturday, the best of the best come out to show off their steps in International Standard, American Rhythm and Smooth, and International Latin competitions, along with a professional "showdance" showdown.
