Peel the Pumpkin 2018 “Under the Big Top”

Friday October 26 Sunday October 28

Peel the Pumpkin 2018 “Under the Big Top” will be at a new location: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Fort Lee, New Jersey. It is just across the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan. The hotel’s proximity to Manhattan is perfect for our local members and is excellent for out-of-town dancers. An inexpensive shuttle bus service to midtown is provided by the hotel so you can enjoy the attractions New York City has to offer without the stress and expenses of staying there. Three full-time halls will provide non-stop dancing to the amazing Sandie Bryant, Betsy Gotta and Ted Lizotte. Dance levels include Mainstream, Plus, Advanced and Challenge 1. What’s more, we’ve included a sumptuous buffet dinner on Saturday night before our legendary costume parade. Come prepared with your circus-inspired costume and join in the fun. As always there will be a pool tip late Saturday night.
