      not only put their best foot forward to shine on the dance
      floor, but were also tasked with raising funds from friends,
      neighbors and business colleagues through sponsorships,
      ticket sales and contributions. The goal was to win enough
      votes from a judges’ panel to claim bragging rights of
      Dancing with the Martin Stars Champion.
        Each team chose their music and dance styles, including
      combinations of swing, rumba, paso doble, salsa, cha-cha, bolero,
      Argentine tango, desert dance, and musical theater jazz.
        The show was a sellout! Attendees filled over 500 seats in
      the Lyric, 50 viewers livestreamed the event, and a private
      showing at Hudson’s on the River, a restaurant in Downtown
      Stuart, also reached full capacity.
        Guests were treated to an energized evening of
      entertainment that opened with a high-powered dance routine
      by Marianella Tobar’s Latin Addiction Formation Dance
      Team, followed by a video vignette of each team and the
      star dancers.
