It takes a lot to stand in front of people and speak, but it takes even more to dance. That is exactly what these competitors have chosen to do. Learning to chasse, dip, and twirl their way across the dance floor, the contestants of Greenwich’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 our stars have elected to help fund the wide range of high quality programs and services that Abilis provides to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families need to live, learn, work and enjoy life.

Proceeds from the live and silent auctions, and donations made to the dance teams will go directly to Abilis.  All other costs related to the event and gala itself have been provided by Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Greenwich 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.
