Stars Dancing for HEALS

Meet the Star Legacies of 2016!

About the EventStars Dancing 10th anniversary logo_COLOR

Started in 2007 and modeled after the hit reality show, “Dancing with the Stars,” Stars Dancing for HEALS features eight Stars from the community dancing with local ballroom instructors to raise funds for HEALS. The gala event will be held on October 24th at 5 o’clock in the evening in the North Hall of the Von Braun Center (VBC) for ticket holders and sponsors.

Each Star will collect donations (votes) and corporate sponsorships for HEALS to reach their fundraising goal of $15,000. Every dollar donated to HEALS counts as one vote. The Star who raises the most money (votes) for HEALS wins the ‘Top Champion for Children” award. Our audience at the VBC will select one Star as the ‘Crowd Favorite’ with their votes on the night of the event.  You have the opportunity to vote online now for your favorite!

This is our Tenth Anniversary year and we have eight Star Legacies brave enough to fund-raise and dance one more time in support of the children at HEALS!


ANYONE, ANYWHERE can vote for the Stars by donating to HEALS in any amount.  Every dollar donated in the Star’s name counts as a vote.  There are two ways to contribute:

  • Check out the 2016 Stars, then vote for them online! Choose “All Stars” if you cannot decide on a Star!Vote-Online-Now
  • Mail a donation to HEALS in your favorite Star’s name before the event. (1100 Meridian St. Huntsville, AL 35801)

Who are our Stars?

Since 2007, HEALS has had the opportunity to work with many individuals from different areas of the community.  From doctors, dentists, television news anchors, small business owners and civic volunteers, to school principals, our Stars have come from all walks of life to support HEALS! Select each Star name above to learn about this year’s Stars.

Who are the professional dancers?


This year, professional dance instruction is provided by select instructors from the community along with instructors from Southern Elegance Dance Studio & Madison Ballroom Dance Studio.

Each Star is paired with a local, professional dance instructor to prepare one dance for the night of the event. They receive approximately 20 hours in lessons to prepare for the dance.

HEALS appreciates the willingness of the Stars and Instructors to step into the spotlight to benefit the children we serve at our school-based health care clinics.  Without their support and enthusiasm, this event would not be possible. Learn more about the Instructors.



Sponsorship opportunities are offered each year ranging from $2,500 to $10,000. Each sponsorship includes table seating at the event and fantastic promotional opportunities.  Sponsorships can count as votes for the stars as well. Learn more about Corporate Sponsorships.

Thank you to all of our Sponsors and Supporters!
