This year's event took place at Kearsarge Regional High School Auditorium, at 5:30, beginning with a pre show reception and silent auction featuring many services and items donated by local and regional businesses.
At 7:00, the show began with Act I, a competition where these local “Stars” are paired with professional dancers from the area, performing for the audience.
Guest judges evaluated each dance live and the audience voted to decide which couple will take home the coveted “People Choice Award”. This year’s “Stars” are Kearsarge Regional High School physics teacher Brian Kellogg, Bar Harbor Bank Manager, Rob Kier, financial analyst, Amber Gest Palumbo, and KRHS graduate Brain Callaghan.
Act II followed with an extravaganza of dance talent performed by several companies. This year Speaking in Taps, a pre-professional dance company under the Direction of Aaron Tolson, was highlighted, as well as the Bedford Dance Center Repertory Ensemble with Choreography by Melissa Teixeira, and of course KCPA Art In Motion under the direction of Angela Tarleton with Choreography by Cheti Davis and Melissa Teixeira.
The audience was also privileged to see a special performance by the professional husband and wife team Gary Stanhope and Laura Kiefer. After a few surprise performances, the dancers delighted the audience with an epic grand finale.
