Moshe Aelyon — one Westport star — will be dancing with another.
On Saturday, October 18 (6:30 p.m., Patterson Club), the Westport-based youth development and counseling service offers “A Chance to Dance.” There’s the familiar format, sure: 6 local celebrities (including Westport designer Moshe Aelyon, Safe Rides co-founder Julie Mombello and graphic designer Miggs Burroughs) pair with professional dancers for a very entertaining segment, and are judged by a panel including Bill Mitchell.
But everyone else can shake their booty too. There’s also a contest to find the happiest dancer(s).
Anyone can submit a short video of dancing anywhere, any way, to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” song.
You can dance by yourself, with a partner (or more). You can dance well or poorly. You can dance seriously or funnily.
Just dance! Make the Positive Directions folks happy.
(And pay $100. It’s a fundraiser, after all.)
Here’s Liz Beeby’s effort:
The entry deadline is Monday, October 6. The top 40 entries will be shown during the “A Chance to Dance” gala.
The winner will receive “Serenity,” an original artwork by — who else? — Miggs Burroughs.
But, of course, if you pay your $100 and submit your video to help Positive Directions, you’re already a winner.
