Fifth annual Dancing with our PALs
features 8 show-stopping performances

Want to see a great line up of dancers and help a worthy cause at the same time, mark your calendar for the 5th annual Dancing with our PALs held Saturday, September 20, 2014, at the Sunrise Theatre in Downtown Fort Pierce.

Local notables have been paired with some of the Treasure Coast’s best professional dancers from dance studios between Stuart and Vero Beach. Since April, the dance partners have been planning fundraisers and working on the choreography for their performances.

The cast of local celebrities is finalized and includes the following dancers and their respective professional partners: Fallon Barker and Manolo Soler performing a Freestyle Tango; Sandi Hellstrom and Tom Isola performing East Coast Swing; Troy Ingersoll and Lisa Grose performing a Country Couples Mixer; Leslie Knag and James Frederique performing New York City House; Candice Loupe and Bob Murray performing the Argentine Tango; Rick McGuire and Janine Rivera performing Modern Jazz; Dana McSweeney and Craig Galvin performing the Salsa and Suzanne Mogavero and Eliott Acosta performing the Latin Hustle.

The dancers will be competing against each other to impress the judges and the crowd in September. The overall champion will be determined by the team that receives the highest combination of money raised plus score from the judges. Every dollar raised is a point toward the respective team.

For details please call the committee chairwoman, Karen Pearson at 772-528-6649 for information or to sponsor this event.
