WHAT IS DANCING WITH OUR STARS?
This friendly dance competition is the centerpiece of our UNITED Tribute entertainment. Dancing with Our Stars features fun, well-loved individuals from our community—nominated by you! Their participation helps us raise awareness and funds to serve children, families, Veterans, people experiencing homelessness, and people affected by mental illness.
WHAT IS UNITED TRIBUTE?
Our annual gala, UNITED Tribute, celebrates our generous community partners and raises funds to help improve lives in Denton County. The event will take place January 18, 2020, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
HOW DOES THE SELECTION PROCESS WORK?
We are accepting nominations until the end of August. Complete the form below to nominate co-workers, friends, and family—everyone is fair game! Depending on the number of nominations received, we may conduct an online vote at the beginning of September to select 10 women and 10 men to compete.
After being notified of their selection, contestants will be announced and paired by random drawing at a private reception on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Nominees should plan to attend this event.
WHAT SHOULD PARTICIPANTS EXPECT?
Beginning in October, contestants will attend a weekly dancing lesson with Gladys Keeton, Professor Emeritus of Dance at Texas Woman's University. Practices will be suspended for the holidays, although partners may choose to practice on their own time. Come January, contestants will strut their stuff on the dance floor, and the crowd will vote for one pair to take home our coveted mirrorball trophies!
Thank you for your participation!
