Dancing with the Barrington Stars

Barrington Area Council on Aging

Saturday, February 6, 2021
Virtual Live Stream, 7 p.m.

Stars of Barrington will light up the stage in this good-natured competition raising funds for aging adult services in our community. This year’s five local celebrity couples have been coached by professional dancers from the Bataille Academie of the Danse and Inaside Chicago to create a themed routine. These dynamic duos will perform their dances virtually before an audience of supporters and friends who “vote” for their favorites. Donations determine who will be named this year’s King & Queen of the Ballroom. This year’s Star couples are Pooja and Dr. Raja Chatterji, Kate and Lee Duncan, Judy and Peter Gibbons, Amy and Dr. James Kane, and Angela and Dr. Reinhold Llerena. For more info, contact Janine at 847-381-5030 or at joleary@bacoa.org. For event details and virtual ticket info, visit bacoa.org.
