BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The third annual Dancing For the Space Coast, a unique competition and fundraising event that benefits three worthy organizations on the Space Coast, will be held at Florida Tech’s Clemente Center on Saturday, June 3.

This year, Dancing For the Space Coast will benefit the Brevard Public Safety Charity, who has earmarked the proceeds to be distributed to the Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development, the Children’s Advocacy Center of Brevard and Maxwell King Center for the Performing Arts.

This exciting event will feature Space Coast community and business leaders, including Marc Claycomb, Dani Clevens, Angie Friers, Bart Gaetjen, CJ Johnson, Melissa and Ted Parker, Marilyn Scott, Tyler Sirois and Natasha Spencer.

“The true stars of the event are the dancers who work diligently to raise money for these worthy causes,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

BRAGGING RIGHTS ON THE LINE

Each celebrity dancer will be matched up with a professional dancer as they compete in a ballroom dance – and for bragging rights as the best dancer in Brevard. On the evening of June 3, each dance pair will compete in a choreographed ballroom dance that will be scored by a panel of judges.

During the show, couples will earn scores based on several technical skill factors, but the judges’ scores alone don’t decide the dancer’s final score. Leading up to the actual performance, the dancers will have already scored 60 percent of their points through their fundraising endeavors.
