Big band dance weekend canceled

DeKALB – The November Splendor big band dance weekend scheduled for Nov. 9 and 10 at the Duke Ellington Ballroom in DeKalb has been canceled.

According to a news release from sponsor Just Make It Happen, the event only had 20 percent of the advance registrations needed to carry it off.

Plans for the weekend included two ballroom dances – one Saturday night and one Sunday morning – with a big band holiday theme. Both dances were to have featured a meal and a live orchestra.

All advance registrations will be refunded or applied to a future Let’s Dance event by Just Make It Happen. Organizers hope to bring back the fall dance event in 2014.
