Voting open, eight teams to compete in Dancing for the Arts fundraiser

Voting is now open for Dancing for the Arts, Piedmont Arts’ biennial fundraiser, featuring local “celebrities” dancing in support of the arts in Martinsville-Henry County.

This Dancing with the Stars-style contest features eight teams competing to win the most votes, the highest judges’ score and the big prize – a gorgeous mirror ball trophy.

Teams competing in Dancing for the Arts are:

Jennifer Bowles and Justin Chandler

Rebecca Crabtree and Gerald Kidd*

Lori Fox and Keith Ritchie

Ginger Gardner and Hasan Davis

Katie Garrett and Rob King

Brooke Holyfield and Brian Williams

Prior to and during the big event, supporters of the arts are invited to vote for their favorite teams. Votes raise money to support Piedmont Arts programming in Martinsville-Henry County. Like Dancing with the Stars, 50% of each team’s final score is tallied from votes and 50% is tallied from scores awarded by the judges during the contest. Each $1 donation = 1 vote. You can double your votes by joining Piedmont Arts or renewing or upgrading your membership (Each $1 donation = 2 votes).
