Thank you for your interest in being a 2018 Gala dancer!
We are very excited to be planning our 8th Dancing for a Difference Gala in 2018. For the past 7 years we have had a great line up of celebrity dancers that have learned to dance, conquered a fear, marked something off of their bucket lists, had a lot of fun and raised a lot of money!
The Gala is the biggest fundraiser for Citizen Advocates and that is because of dancers like you! Much of the money is raised through vote sales. Dancers sell votes to everyone they know, individuals and businesses, in order to be the highest vote seller and take home the People’s choice trophy.
There is also a technical trophy that is awarded based on judge’s scores. Each dancer is paired with a Fred Astaire dance teacher who will work with you to learn a dance and will then come to the Gala on May 11 and perform with you. Dancers are provided with 5 lessons generously donated by Fred Astaire of Wisconsin.
We will have a pre-event in February to give you more information about the event, dance lessons, costumes and take photos that are used in marketing materials.
All of our Gala dancers are sponsored by a company or individual. We ask that dancers assist in looking for a sponsor for themselves. Sponsors receive a full page ad in our Gala program, listing on our website and facebook, signage at the event and before and a front row table to see the dancing. If you are not able to provide a sponsor, we will assist you.
Please fill out the included Dancer application and bio so that we can learn a little more about you and get your information to our dancer coordinator.
