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.

Dr. Stacy graduated from NYU College of Dentistry in 1996. She completed a general practice dental residency and worked in private practice before deciding to focus on treating pediatric patients and patients with special needs. After graduating from a two year specialty program she practiced pediatric dentistry in New York City. In 2005 she established her own practice in Greenwich, Connecticut and is currently on staff at Greenwich Hospital.
Dr. Stacy lives in Greenwich with her husband Christos and 8 ½ year old son Charlie. She hopes to channel her inner­­­­ J.Lo -AKA Jennifer Lopez -and raise money for our amazing cause. Over the years Dr. Stacy has worked with many patients affiliated with ABILIS. She always loves to practice her moves with them after their appointments, and they sometimes do a little Karaoke too.

Dr. Stacey will be paired with Elmar
     Elmar began ballroom dancing in Germany at the age of 7, and through the years successfully competed in many Regional, National and International competitions. Upon completion of the extensive German training to become a certified dance instructor, he was immediately offered a position as Assistant Manager and Dance Instructor at one of the largest German dancing schools in Munich, Germany.
     In January 2007, Elmar joined Fred Astaire Dance Studios as an owner and Director of the Brookfield, CT location and with the success of that studio He and his wife opened a second studio in Greenwich where he continues to pursue his passion for dancing. Under his direction and instruction, the Greenwich Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s students and certified instructors have won top placements in competitions and enjoy the magic of dance.
