3.  TICKETS:  Just a reminder that all spectators will have to buy a ticket to The Battle.  But it will be one GREAT SHOW so invite friends and family and fellow dancers to come watch some of the best dancing in the state!  Tickets are $15 each at the Kingsbury Hall box office (outside the building on the right of the main doors).
