Event Information

Reason to Dance, Reason for Hope is a ballroom dance competition modeled after the popular "Dancing with the Stars" television show. Local celebrities will be paired with professional dance instructors to learn and refine a ballroom and freestyle dance routine. The celebrities will then compete at an elegant event, being held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, to win one of several awards. Three judges will score the performances. All profits for this event will go the Riley Hospital for Children located in Indianapolis, IN. The evening will begin with a silent auction, followed by a three course dinner, and then the ballroom competition. The evening will conclude with open dancing.

Awards will include:

  • Grand Champion - will go to the celebrity who raises the most money for this event*
  • Judges' Choice - will go to the celebrity who has the highest combined judges score
  • Runner Up - will go to the dancer who has the second highest judges' score
  • Riley Children's Choice award - will go to the dancer who wins the most votes from the Riley Children.

Join us as we support Riley Hospital for Children with an evening of dinner, dancing, entertainment, and a silent auction.
