Meet the 2021 Dancing Like The Stars Local Celebrity Dancers

2021 Dancing Like the Stars 

After taking their routine to the virtual dance floor last year, this year’s Dance Like the Stars celebrity dancers will be back where they belong: on stage, in front of a crowd of cheering fans! Join the Duneland Family YMCA for the 2021 Annual Dancing Like the Stars on Saturday, November 13th at the Stardust Event Center at the Blue-Chip Casino for a prom-themed evening to watch local celebrities perform a dance number in front of a live audience.

 The 2021 Stars lineup includes Jessica Amling, Duneland Family YMCA; Jamie Baczkowski, Trinity Displays; Vern Brown, Chesterton Brewery; Eric Camel, Fire Chief; Kristin Morris, Duneland Schools; Rachel Mullins, Northshore Health; and Scott Mundell, Franciscan Alliance.

As always, the goal of the event is to raise money for the Duneland Family YMCA Annual Fundraising Campaign to support the Y mission and provide programming and membership subsidies. The funds ensure that everyone has access to Y programs and services, benefiting over 2,500 members, 450 seniors in Active Older Adult programs, and 500 children in early learning and school-age programs. This year’s celebrity dancers will rally to raise $75,000.

There are a variety of ways you can support the 2021 Stars and strengthen the mission of the Y: purchase a ticket or table to attend the event in support of the Star of your choice; provide a sponsorship or Silent Auction item, or support your Star by purchasing “votes” for them. The dancers are competing for the coveted titles of People’s Choice Award, Judge’s Choice Award, and The Biggest Bucks Award. You can help your favorite dancer win the People’s Choice Award by voting now and at the event.

Tickets are currently available starting at $75 and include live entertainment, dinner, and a cash bar.
