Dancing With the Athens Stars

The ninth annual dancing competition’s local star lineup includes “Seinfeld” actress Lisa Mende, Bikram Yoga Athens owner Jolin Conine and eight other local leaders committed to improving the community. Attendees will revel in an evening filled with duet dances by the stars and their teachers, as well as exhibition dances by the East Athens Educational Dance Center, UGA Ballet and UGA Ballroom Performance Group. Vote for your favorite duo online or at the event for $1 per vote. All proceeds go to the event’s annual partner, Project Safe, a nonprofit organization that aims to end domestic violence through crisis intervention and public education.
