Dancing with Brevard, hosted by the KLD Youth Foundation, will host fifteen of Brevard County’s community leaders paired up with professional dancers to compete in ballroom dance competition in a Space Coast style “Dancing with the Stars” on June 5 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort and Golf Course.
Each pair of dance partners competes in a choreographed ballroom dance that will be scored by an award-winning panel of judges.
The overall score of the dancers will be made up of not only their dance performance, but also their ability to fundraise for the KLD Youth Foundation.

Bill Butcher, vice president and part owner of Chrome Electric
Carol Carl, vice president business banking at SunTrust Bank in Melbourne
William Chivers, president of RUSH Construction, Inc.
