The Zaring Group has sent us some awesome photos from Casa Dorada’s New Year’s Eve Barefoot Formal which, as most of you know from previous reports, took place in Cabo San Lucas this past weekend. Performers from three different reality shows, “Dancing with the Stars,” “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance” collaborated to entertain guests at Casa Dorada’s New Year’s party.
The event was hosted by Mary Murphy (“So You Think You Can Dance” judge) and featured performances and entertainment by “Dancing with the Stars” Louis Van Amstel, Anna Trebunskaya, Jonathan Roberts, Chelsie Hightower, Dmitry Chaplin; “American Idol’s” Michael Johns, Melinda Doolittle, Rickey Smith, LaToya London; “So You Think You Can Dance’s” Allison Holker and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss.
According to The Zaring Group, everyone sang Kool & The Gang’s “Celebration” to close out the night and welcome in 2012 with a fireworks display over the Sea of Cortez.
Casa Dorada’s New Year’s Eve Barefoot Formal was produced by The Zaring Group. The stage show was presented by Jay D. Schwartz and Louis Van Amstel, with Louis choreographing as well as performing.
The photos below of Allison and tWitch, Jonathan, Chelsie, and Dmitry were taken by Enrique Morales. The photo with Anna and Louis was taken by Omar Wrtiz/Fernando Lugo.
Special thanks to Kathy of The Zaring Group for taking us there up close and personal!!
Also, below is a fun video of Chelise, Dmitry, and Stephen tWitch Boss performing and dancing to “Moves Like Jagger”. Thanks to the Dmitry Dream Team at facebook for the find.
I think I know where I’d like to go next New Year’s if they hold this event again! How about you?
