Star: Ben Taylor
Ben works at the Medical Eye Center where he enjoys working closely with other Optometrists and Ophthalmologists to serve a wide variety of patients. Ben is excited for this opportunity to raise funds for Sparrow Clubs. Though Ben is adept at handling his work, family and church responsibilities, DWTRVS will push him into unknown territory, as Ben is not a dancer. His wife and six kids are excited to see their dad in a whole new light as he takes on the challenges that DWTRVS has to offer.
Partner / Instructor: Colette Kuhl
Two years ago, Colette was invited to become a ballroom dance instructor teaching beginner and intermediate lessons at the Evergreen Ballroom and North Medford High School, as well as coordinating a youth performance group, monthly dance parties and homeschool formals. She has also competed and placed in two intermediate youth ballroom competitions and performed in several showcases.
In addition to dancing, Colette enjoys music, horseback riding, and playing anything from basketball to “couch-wars” with family and friends. Colette would like to thank her amazing partner for being such an enthusiastic learner (in spite of her unrelenting partiality toward difficult moves), her family for all of their love and support throughout her life, and Cori Grimm for being such a wonderful role model and providing her with the opportunity to share her love of dancing with others through teaching.
