Description

Dancing with the Stars for Curtain Call Theater

ARTHUR MURRAY GRANDE BALLROOM OF GREENWICH DANCERS WILL BE ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS’

 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.”
         The benefit will operate similarly to an episode of television’s much-watched “Dancing with the Stars” program, which features personalities and celebrities dancing with professional dancers in an intense and exciting Reality TV-style competition.   Anyone can vote for their favorite couple beginning now at the following link: http://www.curtaincallinc.com/dancing.asp#vote

     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.   

           Other pairings:

  • Nicole Faugno, senior colorist, Noble Salon with David Thomas Moore, Dance With Me, Stamford
  • Nancy Freedman, producer, Stamford All School Musical with Moises Guerrero, Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich 
  • Kevin Leville, founder and CEO, Eat Up, America with Collin Klaene, Dance With Me, Stamford
  • Donna Ormond, Valerie Wilson Travel with Lou Lopez, Latin Moves Dance Studio
  • Nagi Osta, owner, Nagi Jewelers with Rosa Fanelli, Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich
  • Andrew Rowley, head of communications and Marketing, RBS GBM Americas with Kelly Butler, Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich
  • Cari Shapiro, group vice president, Ross Stores with Ronny Dutra, Dance With Me, Stamford
  • Jill Tomasello, Director, Advanced Physical Therapy Center with Ivan Angelkovski, Dance With Me, Stamford
  • Dr. Nolan Zeide, Bull’s Head Pet Hospital with Meredith Landphair, Dance With Me, Stamford

 

        Tickets and sponsorships are available, which include choices of tickets only, tickets with cocktail hour, and tickets with dinner, along with various levels of ad sponsorship.

 


Curtain Call's Dancing With The Stars is its only annual special event fundraiser to help underwrite operation costs.  Curtain Call has been named for eight consecutive years Fairfield County's Best Local Theatre group. Also, in a state-wide Facebook poll administered by the CT Tourism Board in August 2012, Curtain Call was the State's Favorite Theatre Site. In 2011, Curtain Call received the prestigious Governor’s Award for Excellence In Culture and Tourism.

 

Curtain Call, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and contributions toward this event may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Your individual receipt (to be sent after the event) will specify how much qualifies as a charitable deduction. For more information, please call 203-329-8207 x11.

 

 

The Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich CT is located at 6 Lewis Street, in downtown Greenwich.  The studio, which hosts students from around Fairfield County and Upper Westchester, has been restored and redecorated in the Regency period style and is truly a grand ballroom.
