According to Wikipedia, "the robot (or mannequin) is an illusionary street dance style that attempts to imitate a dancing robot or mannequin."
Kevin and Mary Keyzer, Robotics Club mentors at Geneva High School, might be GREAT at doing the robot, but their Cha Cha for the 2013 Dancing With the Geneva Stars competition Feb. 9 will make "the robot" look mighty stiff.
Presented here are photos from their lessons and their practice routines—a sneak peek at a Cha Cha that should not be missed.
This year's DWGS takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 9 at Eagle Brook Country Club. Open seating is $40 per guest, which includes hors d’oeuvres, dessert and cash bar and an evening of great entertainment.
The easiest way for you to make a reservation and vote is to go directly to the Dancing With the Geneva Stars website: www.genevarts.org.
Voting will continue until Feb. 8. One dollar counts as one vote.
Every year, the event has sold out, so make your reservations right ... NOW! The committee promises an evening of fun-filled entertainment with 12 local celebrities competing for your votes.
Also new this year is the chance to win an iPad. For $10, you can play the heads-tails game and go home a winner. And, finally, to end the evening of entertainment, there will be a twist dance-off followed by an evening of open dance.
There is a limit of 370 ticket reservations available. Ticket price is $40 for open seating, which includes hors d'oeuvres, dessert and an evening of fun entertainment. A cash bar is also available.
