Four EduDance couples had the awesome privilege to be able to participate in Dancing with The Stars kick off tour event at the San Diego Sports Arena. Host of the show was no other than Drew Lachey, winner of season two. During the show, young students from the EduDance program, were able to perform in front of thousands of people.
The young students auditioned one week prior to the event to be able to win the honor of being able to participate at the competition. The four couples chosen were, Garret and Sarah, Chris and Ilana, and Colton and Caitlyn from the San Diego Cooperative Charter School, along with Ryan and Dani from Joan MacQueen Middle School in Alpine. The couples competed against one another in two separate dances. The winners of the event were Ryan and Dani.
Many of the children, along with their families enjoyed front row seating at the event. After the show, the students and their families were also able to meet many of the stars from “Dancing with the Stars” backstage to receive autographs and to have their pictures taken with their favorite celebrities.
