Now Presenting the 2022 Dancing for the Stars Winners

Dancing for the Stars is our local Boys & Girls Clubs’ major fundraiser of the year and the event has grown to raise a significant portion of the organization’s operation budget. The event consists of an exciting dance competition in which local celebrities are paired with professional dancers to perform a wide variety of dances. Dancers commit to learn a dance routine and fundraise to support Clubs’ youth, with all proceeds staying local and impacting hundreds of families in our community.

Dancing for the Stars 2022 Opening Event took place on Friday 9th, while the Main Event took place on Saturday, September 10th at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center. The Clubs are deeply grateful for all dancers who joined the mission of fundraising on behalf of our community youth. Thanks to their dedicated efforts and community support, a new fundraising record was set for a total of $465,000 raised in the 2022 edition!
