It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of people and speak. It takes even more courage to dance. Yet this is exactly what these competitors have offered to do. The contestants of Brookfield’s Dancing Stars Gala will spend the next few weeks learning to chase, dip and twirl their way across the dance floor. The Stars are not in it for prestige or personal gain but rather to raise funds from friends and supporters like you to help those in need. The funds raised will help women, children and families in our community receive free services and programs offered by Family & Children’s Aid and the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.

All donations made to the teams go directly to the charity. All costs related to the event and Gala have been provided by the 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.
