Presented by WMU Department of Dance at Western Michigan University - Miller Auditorium, Kalamazoo MI

Oct 27 2018
Dancing with the WMU/Kazoo Stars Fundraiser

Local celebrities and their dance student partners compete to raise money for WMU dance student scholarships.

In 2008, the Department of Dance in conjunction with Partners in Dance, created a fundraiser for student scholarships based upon the reality show Dancing with the Stars.  Each year the dance competition features several pairs of local stars and WMU Dance students competing in various forms of ballroom dance.  The dancing is judged by three community figures and the audience selects the “People’s Choice” winning pair. The evening’s festivities are catered and include a full cash bar.
