OF LOCAL BUSINESSES TO BENEFIT STAMFORD’S CURTAIN CALL THEATER
STAMFORD, CT– A local rendition of “Dancing with the Stars” will be held here next month, featuring the owner and dancers from the Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich tearing up the dance floor with other local personalities and dance instructors to benefit the beloved Curtain Call Theater.
The Ballroom of Greenwich announced today that its team of professional and champion dance instructors will be participating to raise money and bring awareness to Curtain Call as part of the local benefit on Saturday, May 18 at the Palace Theater in Stamford.
This “Dancing with the Stars” evening, modelled after the popular TV show of the same name, will start with a reception at 6:30 p.m. with performances from 8 p.m. to 11p.m. The event raises money for Curtain Call, the long-running nonprofit community theater located on the grounds of Sterling Farms Municipal Golf Course with year-round performances and auditions open to all, as well as acting workshops for children, teens and adults.
The Grande Ballroom’s Owner and President Christine Georgopulo will be dancing with John J. Hickey of Richard’s of Greenwich, the fine clothing store.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday night than dancing with a fantastic partner while raising money for local arts programs that encourage people of all ages to develop their interests in performing,” Georgopulo says. “The Grande Ballroom dancers can’t wait to showcase our latest moves and help the theatrical community of Stamford.”
Fran Pastore, president & CEO, Women’s Business Development Council, Inc., will be dancing with Thomas Varian, Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich.
A vote costs $10 and voting is open until the end of the show, when a "Viewer's Choice" winner (which team raised the most money) will be announced.
