So You Think You Can Dance resident judge Mary Murphy is bringing her ballroom expertise to the community of Long Beach this weekend. In collaboration with Michael Chapman, Mary is holding the third annual Hollywood Dancesport Championships at the Westin Hotel from November 2-6.

The championship features competitions for awards, prize money, and scholarships in all styles of ballroom dance, as well as special guest performances and red carpet events.

It sounds like it will be a first-class event. So, if you plan to be in the Long Beach area and are in need of a SYTYCD fix, jump on board the hot tamale train and check out some grandiose ballroom dancing!
