What is your dance experience?  With my dance partner Lois Mayo, we won the jitterbug contest at our school's sock hop in the 7th grade.  We were members of the renowned Brooks Durham Dance Studio in Chester, PA.  At 13, Lois was a skilled ballerina; I was a veteran tap dancer.  My dancing career began at the age of seven.  It ended rather ingloriously ten years later.  That's when I realized my parents were wasting their money.  They spent thousands of dollars hoping I would become like Fred Astaire, but never made it.  Thinking back, I was the only guy in the dance class surrounded by ten girls.  Could you blame me holding on for ten years?  Seriously, our dance studio performed at dozens of senior centers, hospitals and veteran's facilities in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. We entertained lots of people who enjoyed watching us young kids perform.  They either couldn't see well enough or didn't care that I couldn't dance that well.

Why are you doing this event?  If you had a chance to dance with a partner like I have you would want to perform too.  When you can raise money for a group like East Tennessee Children's Hospital you take the chance of looking foolish on the dance floor.

Why should people vote for you?  Feel sorry for the senior citizen, so vote for the "old guy."   Besides, my partner has to put up with my two left feet for more than a month.

 

Don't miss STAR 102.1's Dancing with the Knoxville Stars, Friday, March 22 at the Knoxville Expo Center!  Buy your tickets now by calling East Tennessee Children's Hospital at (865) 541-8441.
