Sarah Sears is taking her “silly bathroom dancing,” as she calls it, to the ballroom floor as she competes in the Dancing with the DLS Stars, a fundraiser for Denver Language School.
The Westminster mom and parent of a student at DLS, has been training with AJ Morris, a dance teacher at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Westminster, learning a Waltz routine.
The couple will go up against 11 other couples in a competition setting just like the popular television show, “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I have always loved to dance and this was such a fantastic opportunity to do something for the school while doing something I love,” Sears said. “This is my perfect fundraiser.”
Along with learning a dance, Sears and the other dancers have committed to raising $1,000 each for the school.
The competition will be Nov. 17 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver and each couple will be judged by a panel of local celebrities.
“We have come up with a great way to help ensure the school’s success by raising money that will be directly felt in the classroom,” said Karen Prinz Klein, coordinator and the master behind the event. “The money we raised last year was used to hire a music teacher for the 2012-2013 academic school year.”
As the competition date draws nears, Sears is feeling the pressure. But according to her partner Morris, she has nothing to worry about.
“The hardest part for me is getting Sarah out of her shell,” he said. “But once she’s comfortable dancing in front of other people, it will all look great. She has great lines and a ballet background, which makes her perfect for the waltz.”
The Denver Language School is a Denver Public Schools charter school for kindergarten through fourth grade, adding a grade a year up to 8th grade, that provides a full-immersion education in one of two languages, Spanish or Mandarin.
