Santa Clarita will host its own version of the hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars” called “Dancing With Our Stars” to raise money for local non-profit organizations.
Twelve prominent figures from Santa Clarita will be paired up with local dance instructors to via for a chance to be the valleys best dancers.
The couples will dance in front of three judges including celebrity judge Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
“This is a great, fun and innovative idea,” said Tameka Payne a dancer in the competition. “I didn’t realize how hard it was, when you watch people who have all the experience you take it for granted and not really realizing how much work it really is. “
