About The Event

Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars show is a collaborative fundraiser benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Virginia Peninsula and Literacy for Life at the Rita Welsh Adult Learning Center. The 2020 event marks the eleventh installment of Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars. A dynamic lineup of 12 local stars have accepted the challenge to train with a professional dancer and compete in front of a live audience and panel of judges. Roll out the red carpet and join us for what will be an event that you don’t want to miss!

Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars is always a special treat, full of laughs and full of surprises! One of my fondest memories was when the “Stud Muffins” took the stage and brought down the house! We still laugh about that night.

These Stars need your help to reach their individual fundraising goal and every dollar counts – literally. Each dollar counts as one “vote” toward the Fan Favorite award. Two Stars will be awarded on the night of the show, the one who raised the most total dollars and the one who received the highest number of individual donations or “votes.” Each Star has been tasked with a fundraising goal of $3,000. This year, we’re aiming to reach $1,000,000 in total funds raised over 11 years of hosting the event.
