Big news from DLDancers HQ: Daniel and I found out on Friday that we have been chosen as “pros” for the Alzheimer’s Association “Dancing Stars of Central Georgia” event. Just like on Dancing with the Stars we will each be paired with a local “star” to prepare a dance routine that will be performed at the event on May 12 at the Macon City Auditorium. Since we will each have our own star, we will be competing against each other. Let the games begin! According to the information we got from the Alzheimer’s Association, there will be 2 winning couples: the Judges’ Choice (decided on the night of the event, of course) and the People’s Choice (which is the pair that raises the most money). Can DLDancers take home ALL the trophies?
We are so excited and honored to have been chosen and now are waiting impatiently to find out the identities of our stars. I have an idea of who mine might be but it’s a long shot. No matter what, we can’t wait to dive in and get involved with this excellent event. The Alzheimer’s Association has put on these events in other parts of the state (and nationally, I think) and they are the real pros. They have already organized a web site (http://dancingstarsofcentralgeorgia2012.kintera.org), a cast party for March 1, plans to video our rehearsals, local TV appearances, and some other good stuff that we’re not even allowed to talk about yet. And all of this for an excellent cause. The statistics on Alzheimer’s disease are alarming; it is such a difficult and heartbreaking disease for sufferers and caregivers. In every possible way we are thrilled to be involved with such a prominent and well-run humanitarian event.
Stay tuned for lots of updates including: Who are our stars? What are we dancing? What music have we chosen? How can you donate? How can you get tickets to the event? WHO WILL WIN???
