    Dancing With the Services Set to Dazzle the DMV Area While Raising Money for Local Service Groups

    RESTON, Va. – The Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Reston will be hosting a glamorous charity gala called Dancing with the Services on November 11, 2017 at the Crown Plaza Hotel Dulles. The event, based on the popular television show Dancing with the Stars, will feature local DMV celebrities. Tucker Barnes from Fox 5, Anna Trebunskya from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and ex NFL star John Booty will sit on the judge panel as they critique the dance moves of the service members who will be vigorously competing for the first place Mirrorball Trophy.

    This glitzy event will include a dinner and show for ticket holders. 10 active service members from the armed forces Army, Navy, Air Force, Herndon/Fairfax Police Force, Firefighters & EMT’s, even the Vice Mayor have volunteered to dance as competitors. They will be paired with a certified Fred Astaire dance instructor and learn a dance routine for the judges to score. The competitors will spend weeks practicing their routines while raising additional money on their own. All of the proceeds will go to The Pink Fund, Fraternal Order of Police & The Police Unity Tour.

    “I was so excited and honored to be asked to participate in this exciting event, it’s everything I could have imagined and more, everyone is so supportive and learning to dance is just FUN, I go to charity Gala’s all the time and this is just something so different and special” – Jennifer Baker Vice Mayor Herndon VA

    Susannah Moss, the executive director for the event and owner of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Reston, has experience hosting these events. She co-founded the annual DC’s Dancing Stars Gala in Washington, D.C. that generates over $300,000 a year for local charities. For this event, she wanted to focus on the people in the DMV area who help our communities thrive and honor all our local heroes

    “I feel so blessed and fortunate to be able to put on this exciting event and uniquely adding the twist of promoting who our community celebrities should really be, all those men and women in uniform as they are todays real stars“ – Susannah Moss Studio Director FADS Reston

    This charity event will be a great opportunity to experience what it’s like to see a Dancing with the Stars show live. If you are interested in helping, consider buying a ticket to the event or donating an item to the silent auction. Service members are the backbone to our community and it’s important to recognize their hard work and dedication.
