Dancing with the Scholars
Thank You To Our
Dancing with the Scholars XI Sponsors
Dancing with the Scholars (DWTS) XI was held on Saturday, November 13, 2021, at THEARC. The first in-person gathering by the WOLCF in over two years due to COVID-19 brought over 200 community residents, students, and elected officials together for an evening of entertainment for a worthy cause.
DWTS is the WOLCF’s annual fundraiser. The 2021-2022 student dancers, representing Ballou Senior High (Justise Wall, Sophomore), KIPPDC Legacy (TaShawna Campbell, Junior), and Friendship Collegiate, (Ja’Mya Shaw, Junior), performed with Members of the DC State Board of Education (SBOE). They were the Hon. Carlene Reid (Ward 8), the Hon. Eboni-Rose Thompson (Ward 7), and the Hon. Jessica Sutter (Ward 6).
The first-place winner was KIPPDC Legacy, followed by Ballou in second, and Friendship in third.
The Mistress of Ceremony was Britt Waters, a morning traffic reporter on 7News On your Side and a lifestyle host on Good Morning Washington. We thank our many sponsors for making DWTS. XI possible. A special shout out to the choreographers, Amanda “Coach Tia” Jackson (Ballou), Zakia “Zac” Gregory (Friendship), and Adriane Gill (KIPP DC).
DWTS XII will take place at THEARC on Saturday, November 19th. Please mark your calendars.
