Get your dancing shoes on. The 5th annual Dancing with Local Stars is back.

Friday, February 1st, 2013 at The Ambiance starting at 6p for social hour, the dinner starts at 7p. It is a fundraiser for Cornerstone, here in Quincy.

Here is what the deal is. First of all, you have fun. Yes, you need to practice with your partner. You will be paired with a dance partner. Local dance studio's have agreed to teach the various dances with each studio assigned a particular style of dance.

As one of the past dancers, I can tell you it is fun, challenging, hectic and maybe nerve racking. My partner, who put up with my clumsy feet, was Jill Arnold Blickhan and WE were the very first dancers EVER in the history of Dancing with the Local Stars. Talk about pressure. But we did it and it was a blast. No, we did not win, but Cornerstone did, and that is why Jill and I were proud to be there.
