KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Just like the famous TV show, the “Dancing with our Sierra Stars” fundraiser will pair six Truckee-Tahoe celebrities with professional ballroom dancers to compete this weekend for the coveted mirror ball trophy.

This year’s stars — Stephanie Nistler, Gary Botto, Haakon Lang-Ree, Holly Hust, Kurt Smart and Cindy Maciel — may be the best in their respective professions, but the playing field will be leveled as they battle it out on the dance floor with their partners from the Utah Ballroom Dance Company.

Our distinguished celebrity judges — Rich Molsby, Ted Owens and Brinn Talbot — along with the audience will decide the winner.

The show will also feature performances by the Utah Ballroom Dance Company and a special performance by InnerRhythms Dance Theatre Company, which the fundraiser benefits.

Dancing with our Sierra Stars 2016 promises to deliver a spectacular evening of dance and laughter as audience cheers for their favorite Sierra Star. The audience will also get to see hilarious outtakes from the rehearsal process.

Tickets include gourmet bites courtesy of When Pigs Fly with Chef Ron Allen Catering. There will also be wine and beer for purchase.

InnerRhythms self-funds over $26,000 in scholarship and work trade opportunities annually. Proceeds from the event benefit the InnerRhythms Scholarship Fund and programming.

InnerRhythms needs your support to continue its mission using the power of dance and music to cultivate life skills in our youth, promote global stewardship and create an everlasting passion for the Arts.

Thao Doan is a parent volunteer on behalf of InnerRhythms Dance Theatre Company. Visit innerrhythms.org to learn more.
