Dear Supporters,

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstance the “Third Annual Brookfield’s Dancing Stars” will no longer be happening. We would like to thank all those involved: The dancers, the stars, the staff and representatives of both charities and the Ridgefield Playhouse. It was a Herculean effort on the parts of each of the groups, but in the end the obstacles were just to large to overcome.
Brookfield’s Dancing Stars as always is committed to reaching out into the community and giving back. We are already in the process of laying the ground work with our sister event Dancing Stars of Greenwich and will be looking into soon after the new year preparing for our 2019 Gala.

Thank you once again to all our supporters who make this the most exciting charity event of the year. We are looking forward to working with our partners to bring an even bigger event to the Greater Danbury Area.
The team at Brookfield’s Dancing Stars


You are cordially invited…

     To the most exciting Charity Gala in Fairfield County each year.  An evening bringing the glamor and style of the legendary dancer, Fred Astaire, himself. The Gala treats guests with a chance to experience the thrill of a Dancing with the Stars style contest and professional dance shows by the Fred Astaire Dancers.

     The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Brookfield plays host to the 3rd annual, Brookfield’s Dancing Stars. Guests of the evening will enjoy a live stage show & entertainment. Arriving at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield Connecticut at 5:30 pm, attendees will partake in a VIP cocktail reception where they can mix and mingle while cheering on their favorite dancers. They will be able to meet the contestants and judges, peruse the items of the silent and live auction, and enjoy hors d’oeuvre.
     Local Stars will take to the stage a will try and outdance the other competitiors and before the night finishes the audience will discover which team has raised the most for their charity. Awards will be presented to the winner of the dance contest, the top team, and the top fundraiser. A giant check will be presented to representatives of the winning charity.

     The third Annual Brookfield’s Dancing Stars Gala is a fundraising event full of all the fun, glitz and glamour of the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars!  Local celebrities and community leaders will learn a polished choreographed routine and perform with a professional partner at the gala in a competition mirroring the television show. This format is the one used for ABC’s hit TV show. By donating to a couple, the audience will vote for the dancer they want to win the most. The top fundraiser is given the “People’s Choice Award”. This is like when callers vote for their favorite star on TV.  A panel of celebrity judges will watch and decide the winner of the dancing contest who will receive the coveted mirror ball trophy.
     Past Gala attendees loved the opportunity to dress elegantly and enjoy the music, food, and comaraderie that comes from the experience. It’s an evening where people can let loose from their busy day and relax. In its first year 7 charities competed in the event. Year two 6 contestants tried to out raise each other with all proceeds going to the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.  In year three we have pitted 2016 Top Charity vs. 2017 Beneficiary to see which charity can raise the most money. In the first two years of the Gala and with our sister event in Greenwich Fred Astaire Dance Studios have raised $148,000.
