Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars Announces 2012 Lineup

Dancers to compete for ‘fan favorite’ in online voting

A dozen community leaders in the Historic Triangle have begun to practice moves that will take most well out of their comfort zones and into the performance spotlight with the 2012 edition of Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars, set for March 3, 2012 at Phi Beta Kappa Hall at the College of William and Mary.

imageKen Johnston, co-chair of the event that benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Virginia Peninsula and Literacy for Life at the Rita Welsh Adult Learning Center, introduced the lineup at a cocktail party last month.

“This is a great group of community leaders, and I know I’m not alone in looking forward to what they’ll be able to do on the dance floor,” Johnston said.

Dancers are: Lance Pedigo, one of the leaders of Colonial Williamsburg’s Fifes and Drums and also a member of the Celtic band Poisoned Dwarf; Dr. Ann Marie DeFiglio-Campolattaro, with the Yorktown Family Practice of TPMG; Scott Grafton, owner of Iron-Bound Fitness and Gym in New Town; Mary Johnston, a long-time teacher at Walsingham Academy (as well as a graduate); Bob Graves, president of Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center; Mary Beth Gibson, executive director and co-founder of Beyond Boobs! breast health support group; Scott Wise, a former James Blair Middle School teacher and owner/partner in University Management, Inc., a real estate development and management company; Tiffany Francis Reaves, of Howell Creative Group and president of Young Emerging Professionals of Williamsburg; Will Melton, owner of Computer Concepts of New Town (the reigning small business of the year for the Williamsburg Chamber); Barbara Watson, longtime Community Service Assistant Manager for James City County; Scott Zimmerman, owner of Conscientious Carpet Care and longtime Williamsburg Kiwanis Club leader; and Darryl Wynne, New Town branch manager of TowneBank.

Four local dance studios have volunteered their professionals to pair with the stars and prepare them for competition. Megan Van Guilder, Lorna Williams and Jerome Mester of Artinspired Studio One NN (Marilen Crump, owner) in York County; Steve Kirvan (owner) and Denise Ridley of 7 Cities Ballroom in James City County; Cindy Norge (owner), Woody Denmon and Elisabeth Tarodi of Country Bootleggers Dance Studio in York County; and “Mr. Z.” Rick Zilonka (owner) of Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Virginia Beach all will participate.

Fans are encouraged to vote for a pre-performance favorite by going online to www.WilliamsburgStars.com , where every dollar they donate turns into a vote for their favorite. The winner will receive a special award at the March show.

Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars is also on Facebook: www.Facebook.com/williamsburgstars .

Tickets – including VIP passes that include a pre-show reception with the stars – will be on sale soon.
