Dancing With The Stars Quinte is back for another year, with eight new couples set to hit the dance floor this spring, in support of Volunteer and Information Quinte.
The 11th annual event was held in Wellington last year, and is returning to the newly renovated Yardmen Arena on May 25.
VIQ’s Tracey Legault-Davis tells Quinte News it is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
Legault Davis adds they are looking forward to getting back into the Yardmen, after holding last year’s successful event in Wellington.
She adds there are dancers from all walks of life.
Last year’s winners Darek Wierzbicki and Gordana Vranic will perform an opening act, with a special intermission performance by one of the dance instructor’s studios.
