9th Annual Dancing Stars of Leeds Grenville

Dancing Stars of Leeds Grenville

Dancing Stars of Leeds Grenville

 Now in its 9th year, this exciting event features performances by local celebrities, led by local dance studio instructors who donate their time and talents to choreograph and coach the dance teams. A panel of local celebrity judges provides commentary and will select the winning team from the top fundraising finalists. Attendance will exceed over 300 at this traditionally sold out performance.

In the end, the real winner is the Volunteer Centre, who hopes to raise much needed funds as well as awareness about the value of volunteer contributions in our community. Funds raised through this charity event will support the Volunteer Centre of St. Lawrence-Rideau in their mission to promote volunteering and to build leadership and capacity in non-profit organizations.

Dancing Stars is a fund raiser for the Volunteer Centre of St. Lawrence-Rideau.  Each year, since 2012, local celebrities have been selected and paired with local dance instructors. The instructors train the dance teams who perform a number at the event.  

The public is invited to purchase tickets to attend the event and to select their favourite performance by casting their vote with loonies. A panel of judges, comprised of local celebrities, provides commentary throughout the evening. Once all the dancers have performed, the voting containers will be weighed to determine the top three contenders. The judges will select the first-place team from these top contenders based on: Entertainment Value, Choreography and Stage Presence.
