Dance Mania is always full of surprises and this year will be no different.
Because of a number of groups that signed up this year, we decided to do it on a bigger scale. This is why we picked the Village to do the event. Special thanks to the SOG foundation for their cooperation,” stated organizers in a press release on Monday.
