Frequently Asked Questions Stardust Finale Gala

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Where can we buy tickets before the dance?
Tickets were sold at various dates leading up to the dance. At this point you can only purchase tickets online for $20. Other than that you have to purchase them at the door for $25. An advance tickets guarantee admission to the Stardust. Door ticket purchasers may have to wait in line if we meet capacity.

2. How long will the tickets be available online?
You have up until Midnight on Friday to purchase tickets online.

3. I heard that I can purchase tickets at the Atrium, is that true?
This has some truth to it. Barbara has been kind enough to sell tickets to her students during the week. We will be at the Atrium on Thursday (May 24th) night from 9pm to 9:30. So if you want to get a ticket in person this is the only place. While you are there you can take an Intermediate Salsa Lesson which starts at 8pm and goes to 9:15pm. There is a fee for the class.

4. We heard a rumor that if you purchase a ticket to this dance you get free admission to the Grand Opening of the Bellmawr Stardust Latin Dance, is this true?
We were going to surprise everyone. But the cat is out the bag. Yes it is true. If you attend the last dance you will get a ticket for free admission to our Opening in September. Its like getting two for one. Its our way of showing our appreciation for your support.

5. Can you tell us about the Performances?
We will have 3 Salsa Dance groups performing Salsa routines. Each routine will be less than 5 minutes in length. Total performance should be only 15 minutes. The performances will take place between 11:30pm and Midnight. The groups are Visual Impact, George and Charlotte, and Mas Estilio.

6. Will there be a band?
No band. We did a quick survey and most Salseros wanted to hear Jose Rodriguez play the best in Salsa, Merengue and Cha Cha.

7. Will you serve food?
We will serve light desserts later in the night. You are welcome to bring light snacks. Please no food trays.

Unfortunately we are no longer taking table reservations. There will be quite a few tables available on a first come basis. These table are general seating and everyone who sits at them are expected to share the table with other guest. If you prepaid for a table of ten then that will be your reserved table all night.
