THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Woodlands Family YMCA invites the community to join them at the 9th Annual YMCA Dancing with The Woodlands Stars, Presented by “Chesmar Homes” on Friday, April 26. The event is a spin-off of the popular TV show, “Dancing with the Stars”.

This unique charity event is scheduled for 6 pm on Friday, April 26 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. The community is invited to join in on the fun and support the YMCA Dance Cause Squad. Family-Friendly, the event features local leaders and community members, as the live dance entertainment.
