Miramar Beach, Florida (March 1, 2017) — Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) — the non-profit professional theater company based in Miramar Beach, Florida — is throwing a big-haired dance party … ‘80s style on Friday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Lorraine Christen founder/owner of Rise Dance Center in Destin and Denise Fountain with Beachy Beach 30A Real Estate are the co-chairs of the ‘80s Rewind Dance Party that will be held in ECTC’s performing space located Upstairs at 560 Grand Boulevard in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin in Miramar Beach, Florida.

“We all know ‘girls you know you just want to have fun, so we invite all the gals out there to grab your guy, tight roll your best acid washed jeans, and walk like an Egyptian to Emerald Coast Theatre Company’s awesome ‘80s Rewind Dance Party fundraiser,” said event co-chair Lorraine Christen, who owns Rise Dance Center.

The performing arts is all about expression and gives us all a chance to celebrate life. Now, here is the perfect place and time to channel your inner ‘80s era drama queen with some dancing and music to boot. I hope to see everyone break it down on the dance floor,” said ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher.
