The Stars were shining brightly on Friday night at the FFA/Dance Team second annual Dancing with the Stars event. 


Members of the community joined school and district personnel to put on a show that will have the community talking for quite a while. There were twenty one dance performances ranging from swing to hip-hop. The audience was treated to a head spinning Scott Williams, a Michael Jackson moon walking Chuck Adams and two tail-feather shaking Sheriff Steve Coulter and Kyle Bennett to name a few.

High school Principal Jocelyn Lyons brought the crowd to their feet with her hard hitting Beyonce’ moves in high heeled boots!

The Stars went all out on costumes from Brett Beaverson’s Risky Business look and Bill Drury’s faux-hawk to Randy Adams’ ‘Elvis’ and Austin Lunn’s funky 70s hair.

The judges had their jobs cut out for them with so many great performances. In the end, the sparkling disco-ball trophy was passed from last year’s winner, Chuck Adams, to his wife, Sondra Adams.

Sondra performed a mix that included some digs at her husband’s last year’s ‘Hammer-time’ and current Michael Jackson moves along with some serious moves of her own.

Each star was partnered with members of the SCHS Dance Team. The girls selected the music and created the routines for the Stars to learn in two days.

The Stars worked for hours to learn and perfect their steps in order to support the students and perform a great routine. The night was a huge success and the entertainment was excellent!

The event raised approximately $5,000.
