What is Stars Dancing for HEALS?

A Fundraiser for HEALS, Inc.

The Stars’ journey kicked off mid-May when each Star graciously committed to raising at least $20,000 for HEALS while also bravely learning a ballroom dance routine from a local professional dance instructor.

The Star who raises the most money for HEALS through donations (votes) and corporate sponsorships wins the ‘Top Champion for Children” award.

Every dollar donated counts as a vote for your favorite Star!

The event will culminate on October 24th at the Von Braun Center. The night will include dance routines performed by each Star and their instructor along with professional exhibition dances from instructors at Southern Elegance Dance Studio, Madison Ballroom, Huntsville Ballroom, and the North Alabama community. The VBC audience will have the opportunity to select one Star as the ‘Crowd Favorite’ winner with their votes on the night of the event.

Even if you aren’t able to attend, you can participate in this exciting event on October 24th by streaming it live and voting online for your favorite Star!
