Members of the CWRU community danced up a storm last weekend at Dance Marathon's first annual Dancing with the CWRU Stars event last Saturday night. Approximately 250 people witnessed the competition between the eight pairs, as well as additional performances from Spartan Tappers, Urban Elementz, a cappella groups Case in Point, Dhamakapella, and Solstice.
The evening's winners were associate director of undergraduate admissions Ryan Keytack and his dance partner Bianca Rodriguez of Urban Elementz. Second and third place were won respectively by the dance pairs of head athletic trainer Suzi Higgins and Frank Zevnik of Fred Astaire studio of Willoughby, and assistant director of financial aid Susan Alexander and Gordon Kwan from All About Dancing studio. The judges for the event were Wes Schaub, director of Greek Life and Glenn Nichols, vice president for student affairs. Attendees were also able to vote for their favorite pair via text message.
Proceeds for the event went to Rainbow Babies Children's Hospital at University Hospitals, and judging from the attendance, the evening's donation count likely marked a strong success for Dance Marathon. And while it's too early to say, this success could potentially make Dancing with the CWRU Stars an annual event, one that could very well outlive its nationally televised counterpart.
