Eight performers danced their hearts out before generous benefactors of our community at the 6th season of Pathways of Hope’s Look Who’s Dancing competition on February 6, 2020 at the Fullerton College Campus Theater. Total donations exceeded $80,000 to help the thousands of struggling people Pathways will serve in 2020. Look Who’s Dancing replicates the renown Dancing with the Stars TV production.
Ann Hanks danced to A Latin Duo and wins the “Money-Money Champion” award for raising over $22,000 ‘before the show.’ Allicia Samuel wins the “Look Who’s Dancing Champion” with her emotional interpretation of To Dream. Lisa McPheron danced to A Grease Medley and wins as the dancer ‘raising the most votes (money) during the show.’ The competition was robust as Rick Davis, Josh Newman, Kelly Beard, Jesus Silva and Greta Hobson rounded out the list of performers.
The Hart Academy of Dance Tap Team performed a precious and talented version of “Space Jam.” Wait until they are ready to be champions at LWD performances 20 years from now! The Hart Academy has graciously made their studio available for rehearsals. The talented dance team of Maria and Rudy Hernandez provide professional choreography, instruction and partner with our dancers. www.rmhdance.com
