Based on TV’s Dancing with the Stars, the event pairs local celebrities with professional dance instructors. Dancers compete for two trophies – Crowd Favourite, decided by fans, and Judges Choice, decided by a celebrity panel. It’s also a charity event – while rehearsing and competing, celebrities raise money. Funds are also raised through ticket and beverage sales, as well as online and in-person voting
In the past four years, Swinging with the Stars has raised more than $750,000 for hospital departments such as the Breast Health Centre, Physical Rehab and Medicine, and the Operating Room.
The next Swinging with the Stars will take place on January 29, 2022. More details will be available in the fall. To stay in touch, follow on Facebook and Instagram.
