Saturday night saw us at a local hall for the second "Dancing with the Plenty Valley Stars". One student from each of the 6 secondary levels was partnered with a dancer and competed just like the tv show "Dancing with the Stars". It was a fundraising night for the Moira Kelly Foundation.
Mitchell was the Year 8 representative. After a couple of weeks of extensive training with his partner Katie, Mitchell was the last to dance on the night. He did well although a little stiff! Mitchell and Katie danced the Jive. I haven't got any photos of them dancing as it is all on video.
There were 3 judges plus they received extra votes by the amount of money put into their voting boxes. Although he didn't win, Mitchell was very excited that he didn't come last (he came 5th)! Over $3,000 was raised.
