Condit: Cooperation and Good Will for a Great Cause with Dancing Pros: Live!

Wednesday, February 25, 2015


When Dancing Pros: Live! contestants kick up their heels this Sunday night at The Hanover Theatre, one of our city’s most beloved media personalities will be part of the experience as our local celebrity judge.

When Allen Fletcher called his top picks, including Hank Stolz, everyone was happy to help support the Worcester Youth Center by throwing their hat in the ring as a potential celebrity judge. The other contestants included: Tim Murray (president of Worcester Area Chamber of Commerce), Dolly Vazquez (director of Institute of Latino Arts and Culture Centro Las Americas), Kevin O'Sullivan (Massachusetts Biomedical Initiative) Karon Shea (Karon Shea Model Management), Moe Boisvert (chairman of The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts), Jen Roy (Worcester Public Schools), Suzanne Lewis (Morning Host on WSRS), Dale LePage (singer and media personality), and Erica Ayisi (Worcester News Tonight/Charter TV3).

As Moe Boisvert explained, “I am thrilled to participate in anything to support Dancing Pros: Live! because it is a fundraiser for the Worcester Youth Center, and they create stars every day through leadership development and building brighter futures for our diverse youth in Worcester. And kudos to The Hanover Theatre for supporting the Worcester Youth Center’s mission.”

It’s true that Sunday’s 7pm performance is a partnership between The Hanover Theater and the Worcester Youth Center, but when the winning contestant, Hank Stolz, was asked about the evening, he was also very enthusiastic about how much his wife was going to enjoy the evening. Hank admits that he’s looking forward to applying what he's learned watching Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance to his role as guest celebrity judge in an exciting evening of world-class dancing and audience participation. All I know is that this is going to be a night for romance and heat, too!

According to both Hank and Alec Mazo, season one winner of Dancing with the Stars and host for the March 1 performance, dancing is very popular with the ladies! Alec should know, he’s married to one of the pros performing with the tour, Edyta Sliwinska. Even if you’re not looking for romance on Sunday, everyone gets to participate in the show by voting for the winner in real time.

Tickets start at $40, and there are a limited number of VIP seats available. Visit the theatre’s website and show page for information and to get tickets. You can also tune in this Saturday to WCRN AM830 from 1-2pm and to hear more on Behind the Scenes with The Hanover Theatre or visit the blog to hear Hank talk about why he wanted the honor!

Lisa Condit is the Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the Hanover Theatre.
