The fourth annual Dance, Dream & Inspire will be held at the Hard Rock Live on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 at 6:30pm with a VIP party and silent auction. At 8pm, the ballroom dancing competition begins with several local leaders and celebrities that will benefit the Community Based Care of Central Florida (CBCCFL), a nonprofit that oversees foster care, adoption and child welfare services in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.
Dance, Dream, & Inspire
Eight pairs of ballroom dancers will compete in a ballroom dancing competition similar to the television show Dancing with the Stars where they will be judged on their routines ranging from salsa, swing, tap, and tango. WFTV News Anchor Jorge Estevez won the overall competition in 2013 and will be co-hosting the 2015 event along with Nancy Alvarez.
Estevez states, “The thought of watching others dance this year is such a relief. I was sweating this time in 2013, rehearsing what felt like around the clock. I do not envy all the dancers’ responsibilities.
My partner in 2013, Brooke O’Donnell, was such an amazing teacher, and I learned so much about myself and what people can do once they remove any inhibitions. If you watch that clip on YouTube (see video below), you’ll see all inhibitions go out the door.
The idea of being able to contribute to such an amazing charity again this year in a different capacity is going to be very rewarding. I know that’s also probably the case for Nancy Alvarez, my co-host, who was an amazing competitor last year too.”
