Branson, Missouri – “Dancing with the Stars of Branson” has returned again this year in order to support eight different community organizations in and around Branson. DWSB is a “much anticipated event, full of surprises, that provides much needed funds for many local community organizations. The show, itself, was very well received by the enthusiastic crowd who loosened their purse strings at intermission to also provide assistance for the victims of the recent tornado that swept through Branson, as it moved across the United States last week.
Last Wednesday night the community turned out to support this 3rd annual community fund raiser which was held at The White House Theatre. The White House is home to the “Legend of Kungfu” and “Paul Harris and the Cleverly’s” shows. But Wednesday, eight couples danced a variety of styles, presented in the style of a popular TV show. Branson’s “Stars” are regular folks from our community, who are not professional dancers, stepping out of their comfort zones for charity. Each one was paired with a Pro Branson dancer to create and learn a dance they performed after just 4 weeks. During those weeks, the couples rehearse and fund raise for their favorite charity. Winners were selected, via intermission voting for a favorite couple, at $1 per vote. Producer Bob Nichols said, “Remember, this is not a dance contest, it is a fundraiser. The couple that raises the most money for their charity wins the Mirror Ball Trophy.”
