Award-winning dancer, Robert Scott, is both a professional dance instructor and owner of Indian River Ballroom, and a returning instructor for this year’s Dancing with Vero’s Stars. Robert with be joining star dancer Dana Baker as they twirl over the Riverside Theatre’s dance floor on Saturday evening May 14

Event Co-Chairs Karen Franke and Adam Chrzan are thrilled to have Robert back in the “Dancing” fold. Robert, or as his friends simply call him “Scott,” has danced with the competition for six of the eight previous years.  After last year’s win in the Best Dancer category with his partner Jan Mason Cilento, Scott thought he would hang up his competitive dancing shoes for one season; but, he is back to help the cause and to take another stab at the Best Dancer award with Dana. As a former national champion in international style dancing, coupled with his gracious creative style and ever-smiling face, we are excited to see what this dancing pair will show to the Vero Beach audience this year!

Our other star dancers and professional instructors include Shelley Adelle with Instructor Laconte Turner; Nicki Maslin with Instructor George Go; Cindy O’Dare with Instructor Joe Wynes; Denise Pieczynski with Instructor Craig Galvin; Bob Brunjes with Instructor Beth Shestak; Jay Ganzi with Instructor Shari Tessier; Marc McCain with Instructor Anya Christina and Steve Rennick with Instructor Karren Walter and Paul Tripaldi with instructor Marianella Tobar.
