The fourth annual Dancing With the Dedham Stars competition is 2 1/2 months away, and the Dedham Educational Partnership recently announced the names of this year’s contestants.
Modeled after the television show “Dancing With the Stars,” the Dedham program pairs six residents with professional ballroom dancers who teach them a routine and perform with them at the event.
Last year’s performance raised more than $25,000, and Dedham residents Andy Shumway, Erin MacDonald, and Peter Springer were crowned winners.
This year’s event will once again be held at Moseley’s on the Charles and tickets will go on sale Oct. 20 at Cafe Paradise, 565 High St. The organization will continue updating its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/dancingwiththededhamstars as the performance day approaches.
