This exciting event is modeled after the popular ABC hit television show, “Dancing with the Stars.” Local Wilkes-Barre ‘celebrities’ are paired with professional dancers to compete for two coveted trophies. They’ll work together with their dance partner to prepare one dance for an evening performance on February 17, 2024.
The event benefits KISS Theatre Company, an inclusive children’s theatre whose mission is to provide arts education to the children of the Wyoming Valley.
There are two prizes to win within the event: the People’s Choice mirror ball trophy and the Judge’s Choice mirror ball trophy.
The People’s Choice trophy is awarded to the dancing team that receives the most public votes. Each dollar donated equals one vote. You can donate as many votes as you’d like, and vote as many times as you want. Voting is open until 15 minutes after the last dance on February 17, 2024, then the People’s Choice Mirror Ball Trophy winner will be announced.
The Judge’s Choice trophy is awarded based on the judges’ scores on the night of the event. The judges will be a panel of local dignitaries, and they will each have golden paddles to give a score (1 to 10) for each dancing team. The scores will be tallied and the winning couple will be awarded their trophy at the end of the show.
