Dancing With The Chicago Stars


What does long-time Chicago Bears Quarterback Bob Avellini have in common with Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson? Illinois State Rep Mike McAuliffee share with Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino? The common link between former Chicago radio host Judy Markey and Bristol Palin?

Seems they've all slipped into dance shoes in the past few weeks, preparing to burn-up the floor with their ChaChas, Rhumbas, and Quicksteps.

While Henderson, "The Situation," and Palin hoof-it-up in Hollywood as contestants on this season's wildly-popular Dancing With the Stars, Avellini, McAuliffee, and Markey are learning to bust a move during private training sessions with pro dance instructors at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Buffalo Grove.

The studio, owned by Dancing With the Stars alum Jesse DeSoto, has partnered with the Northbrook-based Cancer Wellness Center for a ballroom dance competition featuring Avellini, McAuliffee, and Markey, each teamed with a pro dancer from Fred Astaire, to take place during the Center's 2010 Annual Benefit on Saturday, October 23 in the Grand Ballroom of the Chicago Hilton and Towers.

Each contestant is now training weekly at the studio, located at 404 West Half Day Road, Buffalo Grove. Keep checking the website for details to follow if you're interested in attending this special event.
