About the event

This exciting live dancing competition is modeled after the popular ABC television show Dancing with the Stars. Local Wilkes-Barre celebrities are paired with professional dancers. There are two coveted trophies to win: Judge’s Choice mirror ball trophy and People’s Choice mirror ball trophy.

The People’s Choice trophy is awarded to the dancing team that receives the most public votes. Each dollar donated equals one vote. You can donate as many votes as you’d like, and vote as many times as you want. Voting is open until 15 minutes after the last dance on February 17, 2024, then the People’s Choice Mirror Ball Trophy winner will be announced.

The Judge’s Choice trophy is awarded based on the judges’ scores on the night of the event. The judges will be a panel of local dignitaries. They will each have golden paddles to give a score (1 to 10) for each dancing team. The scores will be tallied and the winning couple will be awarded their trophy at the end of the show.
