Meet Erik Clark and Courtney Cross

Through United TRIBUTE in January, we will be introducing you to our brave Dancing With Our Stars contestants!

Courtney Cross
United Way of Denton County

I have lived in Denton County for...

Pretty much my entire life.

What I like best about our community is...

The way we care for and support each other.

My favorite place to hang out is...

My bed.

When I'm not at work, I like to…

Drink wine and talk myself out of getting a puppy.

When I think about dancing at United TRIBUTE, my biggest fear is…

Salsa-ing *too* well.

I would like to say to the person who nominated me to dance…

Thanks...I think?

To me, LIVE UNITED means…

Viewing every person with dignity and strengthening our community however we can.
 

Erik Clark
Wellspring Insurance Agency

I have lived in Denton County for...

Eleven years. The City of Denton for eight of them.

My favorite place to hang out is...

A fishing and hunting club in Gainesville, Texas.

When I'm not at work, I like to…

Work outside, fish, garden, etc. Anything that involves being outside is where you can find me relaxing.

What I like best about our community is...

Denton is a great place to raise a family and do business. There seems to always be a fun event for the family taking place. I hope we are creating fun memories for the kids.

When I think about dancing at United TRIBUTE, my biggest fear is…

I have no rhythm and I don't want to embarrass my dancing partner.

I would like to say to the person who nominated me to dance…

I'm not sure who it was, but after this performance they might be banished from the nominating committee.

To me, LIVE UNITED means…

We are on this Rock together. It is our duty to bless anyone when we have the ability. You never know when the worm might turn and you might find yourself on the receiving end of amazing generosity.
