CROTON — This holiday season, dancers, band members, coaches and parents will be traveling from all across the country to Tampa, Fla., for the opportunity to dance at this year’s annual Outback Bowl halftime show. The halftime show will be Jan. 2, 2017, and will consist of performances by nearly 3,000 youths, including college bands, high school bands and a local dance team, in front of a live audience of 60,000 people.

Tammy Booher, dance instructor and owner of Inspire Dance and Tumble, located at 11 Delaware St., Croton, is thrilled to have her elite dance team included in the event.

“It’s a pretty big honor and it’s definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them,” Booher said.

“It’s going to be really great.”
