While the judges are tabulating their selections, there will be a performance from Dance Magic 808's Foxy Ladies & Fox. Routine is choreographed by Roxanne "Roxie" Kaino, Dance Magic 808's Line Dance Instructor.

Must be a Dance Magic 808 member to attend the workshops. The workshops are for the new and also the experienced dancers. Everyone can learn something.
