Local dancing competition.

It may have already been a whole season ago that J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot) won the Dancing with the Stars mirror ball trophy, but his experience continues to leave its mark. The former “All My Children” and reality show star will speak about his time on the show, as well as his other life experiences at his hometown’s “Dancing with the Stars Chattanooga.”

The event will see local celebrities paired up with professional dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio to raise money for Partnership, a human services agency that empowers families, children and adults in the community. Each dancer will compete to raise funds for a selected program within the organization.

“Dancing with the Stars Chattanooga” will take place at the Mountain City Club on June 23 at 8:00 PM. A VIP reception and after-party will also take place.
