It’s another all-star season for Mareck Center for Dance’s 16th annual Dancing with Missouri Stars. This year’s contestants for the annual fundraiser and flagship event are a line-up of local celebrities who have been chosen by public nominations and recommendations from the board and community.

Competing for the 2024 title are Dr. Melissa Boldan, Adonica Coleman, Billy Dexheimer, Austin Ilsley, Jentry Mills, Mike Schooley, Ryan Stevens and Brian Wear. Each contestant pairs with a professional dancer from Mareck and trains before the competition.

Contestants raise money for Mareck before the glamorous event by typically hosting one to two events of their own with all proceeds benefiting the nonprofit organization. Yet, whoever gets the most votes – one dollar equals one vote- takes home the title. Audience members continue to vote throughout the night for their favorite dance pairs, keeping the stakes high all night.

Dancing with Missouri Stars 2024 is expecting 500-600 individuals in attedaence with the combination of sponsorship tables and general admission tickets. Attendees come dressed to impress with the red carpet rolled out for them. All types of dance routines can be expected by celebrities and their partners.
