Dancing with the Montgomery County Stars is sold out, but you still have a chance to see the show. On Friday, the public is invited to attend a Top-Hat Dress Rehearsal at the Wabash College Knowling Fieldhouse. For a minimum donation of $10 to your favorite dancing pair, community members will be able to see the full dancing program. There are no pre-ticket sales for this event, each adult and child over 14 (children under 14 get in free) simply make their $10 donation to benefit their favorite dancing pair at the door. This provides supporters of the dancers an opportunity to help them reach their fundraising goals and compete for top fundraising honors. Doors open at 6:30 with the program starting at 7 p.m.
The evening’s entertainment will be very similar to the main event. It is an opportunity for the dancers to practice one last time in front of a live audience. All the dancers will be in costume and will complete their dance just as they will on Saturday night.
This year’s dancing pairs are: (star listed first): Rick Bzdok and Abby Williams, Jordan Burkett and Ashley Clute, Carla Earl and Wayne Applegate, Alex Ehrlich and Jessyca South, Justin Froedge and Mallory Graves, Tom Fullenwider and Stephanie Deaton, Sister Joan and Matt Oates, Jason Hutchinson and Heidi Gambrel, Ashley Kendrick and Grey Huey, Mark Truax and Amber Raine Swick. More information about these stars, including their biographies, is available by visiting www.ysbdance.weebly.com.
