|A sultry dance by Arthur Murray dancers|
The Arthur Murray dancers seduced the crowd with their amazing choreography, while the electrifying salsa band, Grupo Aye, provided the musical entertainment. DJ Todd Ernst took the reigns at Glitter Ball as the city's socialites
danced the night away to a much anticipated celebration after the economic downturn in the country. Luckily, the JW actually saw double digit growth both in hotel occupancy and restaurant covers.
The JW wasn't alone in welcoming 2011 in style. The entire downtown was reminiscent of ArtPrize crowds as fifty degree weather blessed West Michigan just in time to ring in the new year. The HOT New Year's Eve celebration at Rosa Parks Circle, headlined by the band Good Charlotte, brought in over 35,000 revelers to downtown with an outdoor concert and dance party on this milder than normal winter night.
