What is your previous dance experience?
Ballet as a little girl and Irish step dancing in high school.
Why are you dancing for Plymouth Housing Group?
Because Plymouth Housing Group transforms lives. Since first learning about Plymouth Housing Group twenty years ago at Plymouth Congregational Church, I have seen the care, encouragement and love that Plymouth staff have brought to the thousands of people that they serve. I also know that flexible dollars raised through generous donations that are often the glue that holds organizations together and allows for innovation.
Where are you going to put your Mirror Ball Trophy when you win?
I work in an open office/bull pen configuration and will proudly display it on our shared work table. I will encourage people to spontaneously dance if they are having a challenging day.
Meet Professional Dancer Jonathan Wingard-Phillips
Jonathan Wingard-Phillips was all but convinced that he had two left feet and no sense of rhythm until he started experimenting with Ballroom Dancing in 2005. He immediately fell in love with partner dancing, but Bachata is his new love. It gives him the opportunity to express himself and be creative with amazing music. The body-rolls, dips, and sexiness of Bachata are just icing on the cake!
