Fresh on the heels of the successful 2014 USA International Ballet Competition, Friends of the USA International Ballet Competition will present Moonlight Attitude, a fundraiser for the USA IBC, Tuesday, Oct. 21, at the Old Capitol Inn, 226 North State Street, in Jackson.

Based on the success of last year’s inaugural event, Moonlight Attitude again will feature an hour of ballroom dance instruction for guests who want to polish their steps before the band takes the stage. Jim Frechette of Applause Dance Factory in Ridgeland will provide the group lesson from 6 to 7 p.m. The Capital City Stage Band will begin playing at 7 for an elegant evening of dancing, heavy hors d’ oeuvres and libations. Tickets, priced at $75 each, are all inclusive.

“As a volunteer group, the Friends organization is a great way to be involved with the USA IBC, the event that transforms Jackson into the center of the dance world every four years,” said Mary Schiele Scanlon, Friends President. “Moonlight Attitude is one way we raise funds to support the USA IBC, which is one of the oldest, most respected international ballet competitions and the official IBC within the United States.”

Four pieces of art will be given away in drawings during the evening. To see the art and purchase a raffle ticket for four chances to win, click here.
