Dancing with the Wilmington Stars

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Local celebrities are teaming up with local choreographers for the 2009 Dancing with the Wilmington Stars.

The couples have been rehearsing for weeks in preparation for their performance Saturday night at 7:00 on the second floor of the Tileston Building.

WECT's Casey Roman was paired with TECHMOJA operator Kevin Lee-y Green. TECHMOJA is a small dance and theater company.  This year Green produced Dreamgirls and The Wiz for the company.

Proceeds from the competition will go towards providing an elevator and handicapped access to the main building of the historic Tileston School.  They will also use the funds to make upgrades to the restroom facilities.

Tileston was Wilmington's first public school and has been reborn as a functional part of the historic downtown community.

Tickets for the performance are $100 and can be purchased online here or at the door Saturday.  Also, be sure to vote online for your favorite couple.  Online votes will be combined with the votes from the judges and guests the night of the event.
