Posted on: August 10, 2010

Monday (8/9) on the York Dispatch (Pennsylvania) website, John Walk writes, “Have you ever wanted to showcase your ‘Dirty Dancing’ talents? If so, you might want to attend the YorkFest Arts Festival. The Arthur Murray Dance Studio will host a contest for people who dance best to the song ‘Do You Love Me?’—made famous by the movie ‘Dirty Dancing.’ Five pairs of dancers will be rewarded with concert tickets to see The Contours perform with the York Symphony Orchestra at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center on Friday, Sept. 3.  The Contours recorded ‘Do You Love Me?’ and will perform Motown hits of the 1960s and 1970s. The Dirty Dancing contest will be held during the festival outside of the symphony’s office at 10 N. Beaver St. at 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28. The contest is part of the pre-event publicity for the upcoming concert, which will kick off the symphony orchestra’s 2010-11 season.”
