Alpine Public Library is proud to present Alpine’s first ever Dancing with Alpine’s Stars, a dancing competition fundraiser. Join us for an evening of lively entertainment as ten couples competitively dance their way to the top! Vote for your favorite team of dancers. Votes are $5 each and you may vote as many times as you like (it’s a fundraiser!). Dancers will compete for two trophies. One trophy will be awarded to the couple that receives the most votes overall. The second trophy will be awarded to the couple that receives the most votes on the night of the event. Use the buttons below to pay for dancer votes through PayPal. Each couple will also will be selling votes to be counted before the event. Voting on the night of the event will most likely be cash only.
This exciting event will be held at the Alpine Civic Center on Saturday, February 16, from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Cost of entry to this event is $20 for a single attendee and $35 for couples.

Instructor: Sandra Pratt
Sandra has 40 years of body work experience. She graduated from Jay Scherer’s Santa Fe Academy of Natural Healing and the Kototama Institute of Acupuncture and was licensed in both practices by the state of New Mexico. Sandra also studied Reiki, Ortho-Bionomy, and Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing. Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle way of following the body’s own ways of healing and moving pain into comfort. Somatic Experiencing deals with physical, mental, and emotional trauma.
Pains old and new can be released, the body relaxed so that it is more pliant and flexible to prevent injury and create a better balance and posture. The class will be ‘made to order’ as different requests are made. The practices are easy to Learn.
