This year’s line up of local celebrity dancers include:

  • Salsa — Marie “Doc” Holliday & Alvin Tolliver; David DuBois & Rosa Navejar; Daniel Segura & Nancy Leal; Dr. Staussa Ervin & Calvin Rollins II
  • Disco — David & Melissa Goodroe; Greg & Tina Kalina; David & Mattie Parker; Brian & Stacey Pierce

  • Tango — Capt. T. D. & Barbara Smyers; Fritz & Margaret Ritsch
  • Waltz — Johnny & Sherri Campbell; Dr. Melody Johnson & Michael Sorum; Mark & Robin Nurdin; Andy Schoolmaster & Jackie Brewer
A new addition to this year’s event are the “Dancing Divas” led by Mayor Price. This group of powerful ladies will perform to a song made famous by Fergie but not compete for votes. They include: Mayor Betsy Price; Becky Renfro Borbolla; Janet Capua; Mae Ferguson; Janet Hahn; J.R. Labbe; Rachel Vogel; and Julie Wilson. “This is going to be an event you’ll want to see. These dancers are well-known in Fort Worth as community leaders but don’t usually perform for a crowd of 500 people. Especially not a dance routine,“ said Greg Morse, this year’s Dinner Chair and President/CEO of Worthington National Bank.
