On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you for Dancing with the Stars of Casper … Can you say 10? If you need a little push, more information, or a reason to join us on October 23, just give me two minutes.

Dancing with the Stars of Casper is in its 11th year, meaning it’s a polished, well-run evening with the kinks worked out. You’ll arrive at the Ford Wyoming Center and check in with our friendly, smiling volunteers. We’ll show you to your seat, where the table will be set for the evening to come: dinner, drinks, dessert, and an incredible show! You can get some complimentary wine or a handmade cocktail, including a specialty drink from Backwards Distilling called the Poison Apple. Walk around the arena floor, taking in the excitement of the dancers, judges, and fellow guests. As you wander, you’ll see the beautifully curated auction packages for trips, date nights, family-fun, hunting, and more.

Then the show will begin! From your table, you’ll be transported into this year’s theme: Villains! We’ll begin the auction and live entertainment. Bidding is made easy as you’ll be able to view and place bids from your cell phone. We will kick off your entertainment with a Grand Opening performance. Then some of our high-profile community members (both stars and professionals) will perform choreographed dance routines while others are taking on the role of Judge and will be providing “constructive” commentary like only our fellow Casperites can. The Dancers are also dancing for you, in hopes of winning your votes for the People’s Choice Award. You can vote via your cell phone; each dollar equals one vote for your favorite couple. The show will conclude with a finale performance followed by trophies and the Judges’ Choice Award! Curious who’s dancing this year? Visit https://mercercasper.com/2021-dwts for the details!

But do you want to know the best reason for coming to Dancing with the Stars of Casper? You’ll be supporting Mercer Family Resource Center, which works with thousands of our fellow community members. Mercer helps keep youth in their homes with their families; provides parents the tools and support they need to take on the rewarding but sometimes difficult job of parenting; teaches teens the value of learning from their mistakes; and provides counseling for families, couples, and individuals. The agency organizes 45+ local service agencies to work on common goals, support families and survivors of suicide, and provide a safe place for teens to get positive mentorship and pro-social activities. That’s a lot of support you can give to others in our community in just one evening!

If you don’t have plans on Saturday, October 23, please join us for Dancing with the Stars of Casper. Our staff, volunteers, judges, and local celebrities have been working hard all year to make sure you’ll be entertained!
