The judges gave perfect scores to Taylor Kinzler, co-host of NBC CT-Live, who danced a salsa with Arthur Murray Dance Studios pro Kadeem Jordon, and to Eva Zymaris, WFSB reporter, who danced a cha-cha with Luis Cabasa, also a dance pro with Arthur Murray. The audience’s votes broke the tie, giving Kinzler the win for her performance.
Among the evening’s highlights were the dance performances of two CRIS volunteers who also are CRIS listeners, Diane Duhaime and Steve Famiglietti. Duhaime danced a waltz with Arthur Murray’s Crisen McKenzie and Famiglietti, manager of assistive technology at Oak Hill, danced a tango with dance pro Sally Nasatka.
It may have been the most dazzling D&D yet, and the winners are the people all over Connecticut who use CRIS services, as the night raised record amounts to help CRIS continue its mission.
Thank you to everyone who participated and made this such a fantastic event!
