High Point, NC - If you want to see a great line up of dancers and help a good cause at the same time, we have the perfect event for you. The third annual Communities In Schools Dancing With The High Point Stars event is this Saturday, Feb. 23rd at Showplace in Downtown High Point.
High Point's local "stars" will be paired with professional dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Last year's event was attended by 500 people and raised 45,000 dollars for Communities In Schools programs.

WFMY News 2's Tracey McCain is honored to be the event's co-emcee along with Jim Morgan, the event's winner in 2011.
Ticket sales and voting for your favorite local star will raise funds for Communities In Schools of High Point. Communities In Schools empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life. In the 2011-2012 school year CIS served 6510 students at 10 High Point schools. One hundred percent of CIS seniors graduated and either went to college, entered the work force or the military.
