The Covey Center for the Arts will present an evening with ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" celebrity dancer Mark Ballas, who is bringing other celebrity dancers to perform with him including other "Dancing with the Stars" professionals Derek Hough and Oksana Demtrenko.(Hough and his sister Julianne Hough are Utah natives.)

"So You Think You Can Dance" finalists Cyrus Spencer, Lindsey Arnold and Eliana Girard will also be joining the line-up.

Ballas has wowed over 20 million viewers on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," for 11 seasons, and is a two-time champion (Season 6 with Kristi Yamaguchi and Season 8 with Shawn Johnson), and caused a media frenzy when he took Bristol Palin all the way to the finals in Season 11.

In early 2012 he and his partner, Katherine Jenkins, danced in the finals, finishing in second place. Ballas is also a musician. On April 12, Mark's debut solo album "HurtLoveBox," was released by Hit Play Records – Sony Red. His first single "Hotwire" was the winner of MTV's Freshman Five for 2011 and has been put in rotation on the network. Thus far, it has received over 100 million documented views.
