It takes a lot to stand in front of people and speak, it takes even more to dance. But, that is exactly what these competitors have chosen to do. Learning to chase, dip, and twirl their way across the dance floor the contestants of Brookfield’s Dancing Stars are not in it for the prestige, or for any personal gain, they are doing it to support those who are less fortunate. Each of these stars has chosen to help fund all of the free services and programs offered by the Women's Center of Greater Danbury.

    All donations made to the teams go directly to the charity. All cost related to the event and gala it’s self-have been provided by Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Brookfield or one of our great patrons. Each dollar donated is a vote for your favorite dancer. If you would like to make an offline donation, please contact Matthew Ames “Event Coordinator” at 203-775-6588 to make arrangements.

     Patti is a single mom of two magnificent girls, one now in high school and one in college.  She is thrilled to be a part of helping the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury and such a great cause. 
     Patti owns and operates two successful businesses, including one, in which for the last 23 years she has taught individuals, as well as health professionals, to implement wellness solutions into their practices and daily lives.  After dealing with weight and health issues of her own, Patti feels this "work" has been more than a business--- and always more like a cause.
     Patti is an active member of St Rose of Lima Church in Newtown; volunteers with school and church functions; and spends any free time playing golf, tennis and, most recently, sailing with her girls and fiance, Lou.  She also a bona fide “foodie”, and so is grateful for the extra exercise in dancing!!

     Patti adores the community around her, including her family, friends and business partners, who have been there through the best of times (and the "not so much").  For all that is so great in her life, Patti loves the feeling of giving back. 


Patti has been Paired with Marcel

     Marcel began ballroom dancing in Germany at the age of 8. Taking place in many Regional, National and International Competitions in Europe, he is a four-time German Master, European Champion and World Champion in Boogie Woogie and Swing. Marcel became certified as an instructor at Fred Astaire Dance Studios in 2009 and added the duties of Studio Supervisor in 2011. In 2015 Marcel joined Elmar as an owner of the studio.
