Dancing with the stars swings into Clarksville

This year’s celebrities include: Cassandra Osborne from CEMC, Jameson Griffis with Merrill Lynch, Felicia Long from Keller Williams Realty, Kay Sites of Sites & Sutton Marketing, Scott Jensen with Planters Bank and Kayla Goad LeVan from Byers & Harvey, Inc.

The orchestra is tuning up, the dance shoes are nervously tapping backstage and the excitement is building for Saturday night’s Fourth Annual Dancing with the Stars presented by Altrusa International of Clarksville.

Months of preparation will come together on February 18th at 7 p.m. inside the APSU Mass Communications Building.

The evening will be filled with fun and intense competition all with the goal of raising money for Altrusa International of Clarksville’s scholarship program for non-traditional students.

Twelve recipients will be awarded scholarships totaling $8000.

This year’s celebrities include: Cassandra Osborne from CEMC, Jameson Griffis with Merrill Lynch, Felicia Long from Keller Williams Realty, Kay Sites of Sites & Sutton Marketing, Scott Jensen with Planters Bank and Kayla Goad LeVan from Byers & Harvey, Inc.

Practice began months ago with local instructors Patricia Lefler and Tiffany Stahl from the Clarksville Dance Club. Participants then began rigorous one-on-one rehearsals with their individual professional partners from Dance World Nashville.

The pros are a mix of the finest instructors and national competitors in ballroom dance.  This year’s lineup features Jonathan Bungard, Jennifer Kirksmith, Danny Pugh, Christopher Wayne, Annemarie Fournia, and Matt Stewart.

Unfortunately for one of the contestants the competition is over before the big night on stage.  Kay Sites took a tumble a few weeks ago and what was initially diagnosed as a bad sprain was actually two broken bones.

“I am really disappointed.  I was practicing so hard and having so much fun,” Sites said. “The audience will be impressed at the level of skill of all the dancers.”

Tickets are $30 each and are still available for the event. Tickets are available at Dunn Electric Services, from any dancer or Altrusa member. For more information on the event call Judy Hammerstein at 931-358-0630.
