The Kravis Center's "Reaching for the Stars" Winners!

Nearly 500 local dance enthusiasts recently attended South Florida's most celebrated annual ballroom dance competition when the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts presented the 19th annual Reach for the Stars. The annual fundraiser benefits the Kravis Center's S*T*A*R (Students and Teachers Arts Resource) Series and education programs.
Quickstepping their way to way to winning the highly coveted sparkly mirror ball trophy were Erin Guy, Anchor/Reporter for WPBF 25 News, and Greg Kranz from the Paramount Ballroom. The pair worked endlessly from the start of the New Year until the day of the show and it seems like all their hard work paid off after the top two teams ended in a tie, both scoring two 10's and a 9.5, with the winner being chosen by audience applause.
The Judges of this years Reach for the Stars ballroom dance competition were Steve Caras, former NYC Ballet dancer, photographer, keynote speaker and the subject of an international award-winning documentary now airing on PBS stations nationwide; singer, actress, and classically trainer dancer Mia Matthews; and actress and broadcast personality Jo Ann Pflug.
Congratulations to Mr. Kranz and Mrs. Guy on their big win and doing an extraordinary job of representing the Paramount Ballroom in this years event! Bravo!
