They have been practicing for two months and now it’s time to strut their stuff on the dance floor! Vote for your favorite couple by joining Orland Township and Supervisor Paul O’Grady at the eighth annual Dancing with the Senior Stars.
Modeled after the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars”, Dancing with the Senior Stars of Orland Township will feature five couples, ages 55 or better, who will perform two dances each. Prior to the competition, contestants perfected their dance steps under the guidance of the professional dance instructors from Arthur Murray Dance Center in Orland Park.
The winners will be chosen based on their scores from a panel of local celebrity judges (studio owners / dance instructors), audience vote and ballot box totals. Each couple will have a ballot box set up and audience members are encouraged to fill the boxes of their favorite dancers with money. All ballot box money is donated to the Orland Township Scholarship Foundation.
“These talented and energetic couples have been practicing for more than two months and are eager to show off their dance skills,” said Supervisor O’Grady. “This will be a fun and entertaining evening for everyone that raises funds for a great cause: the Orland Township Scholarship Foundation.”
Dancing with the Senior Stars of Orland Township is scheduled for Thursday, November 14 at Georgios Banquets, 8800 W. 159th St., Orland Park. Tickets are $30 and include a plated dinner, non-alcoholic drinks (cash bar available) and dessert while viewing the live show. Tickets must be purchased in advance at Orland Township, 14807 S. Ravinia Ave., Orland Park.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Orland Township Scholarship Foundation.
