Wayne is one of ten local community and business leaders performing in the California Center for the Arts 5th Annual Dancing With Our Stars fundraiser. Just like the tv show, each volunteer dancer is paired with a professional dance instructor to master a routine and compete for the audience's adoration.
On top of volunteering their time to learn choreography to put on a fantastic show, our dancers join together to help raise $175,000 to benefit arts education and engagement. Support your favorite dancer and help them reach their goal by contributing today!

"I was a guest at 2019 Dancing With Our Stars – and had an absolutely terrific time! I was just mesmerized by the dancers and their incredible talent. Little did I know at the time that I would be dancing in the competition a year later, and my partner would the professional dancer who absolutely amazed me in the 2019 competition."
