Don has been dancing for 70 years, all for the joy that it is! One of his greatest highlights was Twisting on stage with Chubby Checker for the 1st show of the evening and then being pulled up on-stage by Chubby for the 2nd show. Don’s focus is swing dancing (Lindy Hop & East Coast) and Twisting.
Don has an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Va Tech (Go Hokies!), an MBA from the University of Richmond and a Banking Degree from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers. After a 28 year career in banking, Don joined International Cooperating Ministries (ICM), where he has been for 22 years, traveling over that time to 37 (?) countries. Don is currently on the board of Angels of Mercy.
Don and Janet have been married for 45 years and have 2 sons. In addition to dancing, his passions include photography and writing ditties. Don is blessed to have Stacy Sparkman Hall as his partner for the 2019 DWTWS!
