A night of Dancing with the Starz as brought to you by the Springfield Art Association and participating sponsors is gearing up for their 2022 event and has enlisted multi-year sponsor and media production company OOT Box Media for help. Led by Andrew Bartlett, the team at OOT Box is excited to capture every spin, dip, and twirl during the live streamed evening of entertainment. Held on March 12th at 7pm, this finale will close out the eight day event in truly star studded fashion.
Dancing with the Starz has become a Springfield tradition and is a promotional / fundraising event for the Springfield Art Association. The SAA supports the visual arts, provides education opportunities for the greater Springfield area, and preserves and interprets historic Edwards Place and the collections of the SAA. By supporting this event, sponsors are able to further support this mission and continue to make art and art education accessible to the area.
When Bartlett was asked to comment on his involvement with the event and the SAA as a whole, he said this.
"OOT Box is all about art. Everything that we do is artistic and making sure our community continues to have access to art resources as well as supporting local art and artists is extremely important to us. When the SAA approached us about filming Dancing with the Starz and helping with technical support of their live-stream event, it just made sense to us. Plus, having participated as a contestant myself in the past probably has something to do with it too."
OOT Box Media will be filming all of the dancers for their submission videos, as well as managing the complete production of the final, live streaming event. With production and filming services all wrapped in one, OOT Box Media is able to provide a full service program featuring introductions, commercial breaks, sponsor recognition, and of course make sure that the real 'starz' of the show are highlighted and presented as the focal point of the show.
Though being hosted virtually this year, Dancing with the Starz will have all the excitement of previous years. Starting on March 4th, there will be a silent auction hosted on the SAA website as well as a portal where potential donors can get online to cast their votes for their favorite stars (which is also a donation to the SAA). The couple with the most votes and money earned will be named winner during the live stream event on March 12th. Shape the future of art and art education in the Greater Springfield area and support this great event and organization.
