Get ready for a royal evening and Knight Theater…. our Dancing with the Stars of Charlotte Gala, is back THIS WEEKEND! The stage is set for another year of our Gala, and the Queen City just got even more royal. This year’s theme is A Royal Fête so we’ll be in our most royal attire for an evening of incredible performances by six community and corporate leaders along with their Charlotte Ballet partner.
