WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – “Run not waltz” to get your tickets!

That’s what Augusta Levy Learning Center is saying about this year’s 11th annual Dancing With the Ohio Valley Stars!

I think that we start getting excited about Dancing With the Stars two weeks after the previous year. There was so much energy! We have a good lineup. It’s a variety of people from different areas in the Ohio Valley and we’re excited to bring them together.

Angie Wood, Executive Director, Augusta Levy Learning Center

The big night will be on Saturday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre in Wheeling.

All proceeds benefit the Augusta Levy Learning Center.

All of the funds that are raised goes directly back to providing the one-on-one ABA therapy that our children need. So, it’s just it’s so important. Despite COVID, despite a fire, we’ve continued to grow because kids with autism need services and in the past two years we’ve doubled our capacity which is incredible.
