“High energy, grace and talent fill Camden stage”-Pen Bay Pilot

Posted on Monday April 13, 2015

CAMDEN — It was a night of movement and joy — even contemplation — as the stage at the Camden Opera House brightened with local stars and students April 10. The seventh annual Dancing with the Local Stars, a fundraiser for the Wayfinder Schools, drew a full house, as the audience cheered the dancers on.

Dancing with Local Stars paired Midcoast celebrities with professional dance instructors who took to the stage together to show off their best dance moves in support of Wayfinder Schools.

This year’s cast of stars included Ben Curtis, Polly Saltonstall, Heather Hearst, Matt Bixby, Owen Casas, Betsy Kingsley, Craig Ouellette, Erin Ovalle, and Lucinda Ziesing. Each star was paired with instructors from Swing and Sway Dancing or Kinetic Energy Alive.

Meanwhile, Wayfinder student Rakeem Sullivan choreographed a piece and his fellow students joined him on stage to hip hop to “Stand by Me.” The dancers included Sullivan, Myranda Robishaw, Papi Meuse, Rose Piscuskas, Erika Bramhall, Elijah Harris, Faith McQuatters, Shannon Coccia, Fiston Mubalama, Ethan Ward, Alexis Iammarino and Oren Stevens.
