What will look like an arrival to the Red Carpet at Hollywood’s Golden Globes or Oscar events will soon be duplicated in Vero Beach when the red carpet rolls out for the arrival of the ten star dancers and their instructors at the 5th annual Dancing with Vero’s Stars.  Saturday evening May 11 is the date and the Riverside Theatre is the spectacular location. The annual event benefits the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition.

The Red Carpet event is coordinated by former star dancer of 2011, current event committee member Judy Van Saun. Classic cars, courtesy of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), will take their turns delivering the committee co-chairs, Laura Guttridge and Cheryl Gerstner as well as the star dancers/instructors to the Red Carpet beginning at 6:30 p.m. One by one, and dressed to the nines, each star dancer will exit their limo, wade through the awaitng papparazi, drama students from the Indian River Charter High School Schumann School for the Visual and Performing Arts, and join Red Carpet Emcee Bobby Guttridge, the winning star dancer from the 2011 season.

The papparazzi, dressed in vintage clothing supplied by Alison Bertrand and Jackie Ferreira, will click photos and receive autographs fron the passing stars while Jeff Zachary video tapes the proceedings. The audience will enjoy the moment while each star dancer offers a glimpse into their dancing experience and naturally, discuss the “bling” they are adorned with for their exciting evening. The pre-show cocktail party will begin at 6 p.m.immedia.tely inside the lobby and a bar will be set up by the Red Carpet.
