Experienced dancers can apply now to be part of the second annual Dancing with the DeKalb Stars competition coming up in October.

To participate in the fun event, set for Oct. 20, applicants must submit a headshot, resume and/or reel to Dionne McGee at damcgee@dekalbcountyga.gov by July 1.

Dancing with the DeKalb Stars, which pairs dance professionals with members of DeKalb County’s legal, public safety, business and civic communities, is sponsored by the Office of the DeKalb County Solicitor-General. It raises funds through ticket sales and sponsorships for the International Women’s House and the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence.

Experienced dancers and their partners compete for two titles, “Judges' Favorite” and “Audience Favorite.”

The competition, which is inspired by ABC's popular "Dancing with the Stars" competition, gives dance professionals the opportunity to showcase their talent as they choreograph and train novices to dance.

Last year’s inaugural Dancing with the DeKalb Stars competition was attended by 500 people. Stars included DeKalb Commissioner Kathie Gannon, CEO Michael Thurmond, and former DeKalb Sheriff Thomas Brown.
