Remember, you can still boost your favorite Stars' confidence by continuing to donate in their names.
We'll keep tallying throughout November. It won't affect the Grand Championship
(Emily, you will forever be Dancing for the Arts reigning champion),
but it will help bring performances into our schools and provide arts events and activities to our community.


The STARS!

Dancing for the Arts History

In 2015, Mayor Scott Padgett brought down the house with his hip hop performance. In 2016, Ann Schrader and Bill Dusch battled onstage for the top prize until the very last minute!! Ann became DFTA's Grand Champion. Bill walked away a winner, too as Concord's new mayor. In 2017, Joan Davis glided across the stage, collecting the top title in front of an adoring audience. And in the fourth season, Dr. Mark Redding cinched the Grand Championship for his Weird Science-themed dance routine on the Dancing for the Arts stage.

Congratulations to all, and save the date for Dancing for the Arts 2019: Saturday, November 9th.

  • Mark Redding and professional dancer Glenna Wilson came out of nowhere to win Dancing for the Art's 2018 Grand Championship. Congratulations to both of you!
