When it comes to stars, these 10 local phenoms light up our community and are now set to take center stage. Click on each headshot to learn more about each of our selfless contestants and vote for your favorite dancer!

The star dancers and instructors will train for 20 hours over several months and gather community votes in advance of the evening then later at the dance competition itself. Each $1 raised will equate to a vote for the dancer.  Additionally, dancers are expected to raise a minimum $3,500 each to support the IRC Healthy Start Coalition. All dancers will be judged on 50% money raised for Healthy Start Coalition and 50% based on their dancing skills. Dance styles may include Tango, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Waltz, Cha Cha, and Salsa as well as some new twists than seen in previous years. Audiences will not only be wowed by strictly ballroom dances, but will be see a new international flair to the dance styles as well as special entertainment.

Healthy Start Coalition

Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition is the administrative office which oversees the funding and services for five programs; Healthy Start Services, MomCare, Babies & Beyond, Healthy Families, and Parents as Teachers. The Coalition is a not-for-profit agency whose core funding comes from the Florida Department of Health.

 

Riverside Theatre

With close to 300 performances on three stages each year, Riverside Theatre is the area's only professional, not-for-profit theatre. It houses one of the state's only free-standing buildings dedicated to children's theatre and is one of a few theatres in Florida designated as a Cultural Institution. The theatre also has one of the largest subscribing audiences in Florida and attracts over 100,000 patrons annually.
