“Dancing with the Professors” is Washington and Lee University’s own version of “Dancing with the Stars.” Professors, deans, and administrators pair off with members of the W&L Dance Company and show their talents through song and dance on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. in the Keller Theatre, Lenfest Center for the Arts. No tickets are required. Early attendance is encouraged as seats fill up fast.

Dancers will include Will Schreiber from the psychology department; Suzanne Gardner from the development office; John Smith and Dennis Patterson from Traveller; Kelsey Goodwin, director of student activities; Chris Miller, Chi Omega house director; David Novak, professor of sociology; Hank Dobin, professor of English, and a special viewing of President Dudley getting his groove on.

Attendees will be able to vote by donating to their favorite couples in Elrod Commons between Nov. 13-16 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The couple that raises the most funds will be crowned king/queen of the ball. Voting is also available at the door.

This highly popular and “best new event on campus” winner is a great study break and a chance to laugh along with some notable W&L faces.

The event is a fundraiser for the W&L Chapter of the National Honor Society of Dance Arts.
