And now for something completely different! We are dancing the night away.  This Friday Debbie is trading wine glasses for dance shoes as she competes (for bragging rights) along with 7 other Ottawa ‘personalities’ in Dancing with the Stars, an oh-so-much-FUN fundraiser for Easter Seals Ottawa. Grab your dancing partner & join the Savvy Team.  This dinner & dancing is almost sold out.

Practice makes perfect…

For the past 2 months, Debbie has been waltzing & cha-cha-cha-ing at Fred Astaire dance studio  with her dancing partner Dan Labelle (co-owner of the studio).  Just as they do on the ever popular TV show, 8 Ottawa celebrities will rip up the dance floor performing two dance numbers.  The winning dancing pair will be decided on by your votes.

I have been a keen supporter of Easter Seals for several years volunteering,
participating in their annual Bring on the Bay 3km open water swim.
I’m over the moon 
to be one of the celebs in Dancing with the Stars –  I did not know waltzing could be such a workout!  -Debbie
