If you've ever tuned in to any given season of "So You Think You Can Dance" or "Dancing With the Stars" (which, duh, you have), or you've been to a competition or convention lately, you've probably noticed a similar trend: The dancers from Utah are dominating the dance floor.
Consider "DWTS" pros like Witney Carson and Allison Holker, "SYTYCD" contestants like Sabra Johnson, Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson, Alexia Meyer and Mollee Gray, all-star convention faculty members like Joey Dowling-Fakhrieh and Hailee Payne, and all of the dancing DelGrosso sisters. They're the best of the best, and they all hail from the Beehive State.
Now, BFFs turned belles of the ballroom Arnold and Carson are collaborating to celebrate all the talent Utah has to offer with a one-night-only show: Born & Raised Utah.

Arnold and Carson will headline the night of dancing, which will include solos and group performances in all styles and will include loads of cameos from other big-name celebs from Utah and beyond. (Think "SYTYCD" stars, Carson's former "DWTS" partner and champion Alfonso Ribeiro and students from local studios including The Dance Club.)
The show is Friday, July 15, at 7pm, and tickets are still available! Click here to get yours.
