Here at Dancing with the Michigan Stars, our mission is to combine our love of dance with community outreach. For the past five years we have been reaching out to our community via our DWTMS fundraising event, through which we donate the proceeds to a local charity. With this year’s format we are going to share the love with an ultimate dance off with funds going to dancer’s choice of organization. The top 2 winners of the night, People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice, will receive a portion of the proceeds from the night as a bonus donation from Dancing with the Michigan Stars to their chosen charity.  

Tickets can be purchased HERE!
