On April 16, 2013 Dancing with the Staff took place in the CHS auditorium at 7 p.m. At the event, students in Senior Dance Company paired up with a teacher and each couple competed for first place.

The event began with a performance by Senior Dance Company, and the duos were introduced with a video of the students interviewing their dancing partners. After all the couples had performed, an intermission was held so the audience could place their votes for their favorite pair. Each member of the audience received one vote with the purchase of their ticket, but additional votes were also available for 50 cents each.

Following the intermission, another performance was given by the Senior Dance Company, and all the dancing pairs were brought onto the stage for a round of applause and the announcement of the winners.

Third runner up was Ashley Grooms and Kathryn Carlsen with their performance of Roxie, second runner up was Teresa Franey and Karen Reynolds with their performance of Beat It, first runner up was Gabrielle Pisciotta and Kevin Dorsey with their performance of Lose Control, and Kelly McGowan and David Matchim won first place with their performance of Kung Fu Fighting.

“It was awesome and a lot of fun,” said band teacher and first place winner Matchim. “The best thing about the night was seeing the other teachers dance.”

Dancing with the Staff was not only fun for the performers, but also the audience. Many students brought signs to show support for their favorite duo, and each pair was introduced onto the stage with a huge round of applause.

“It was well worth it and a wild experience,” said sophomore Steven Wysocki. “They rocked my socks off.”
