Get to know Carlo through our short Q&A below!

What is your Day Job?

Until the end of 2016, I’ll be the executive director to ACT Theater, managing one of the greatest theaters in town. Starting in 2017 my business partner, Josef Krebs, and I are starting a new consulting company called Scandiuzzi Krebs. We’ll be working with not-for-profits in the cultural arena and the social services arena.

What is your previous dance experience?

Not very much, but I always loved to dance. I danced the tango for a film I was in, as well at the fox trot for another movie. I confess that I probably won’t remember any of the steps.

Why are you dancing for Plymouth Housing Group?

Although I only recently learned about Plymouth Housing Group, the homelessness problem is very real and what Plymouth Housing does is essential to our community. Raising money for Plymouth Housing is a thrill and it brings me a lot of joy to promote and expend the public knowledge and understanding of such a great group.

Where are you going to put your Mirror Ball Trophy when you win?

I will cherish this trophy, reminding me all the points of light is a place for a homeless person to call their own, a place that will give them dignity and peace. And to remind me to support the next Seattle Dances event.

Meet Professional Dancer Erica Atnip

Erica AtnipBeing raised in Texas, Erica Atnip was subjected to a steady diet of church, steak, and ballet. After decades of wrestling steers in pointe shoes, she swapped the arid plains of Texas for the verdant mountains of Washington, where she discovered a new, unlikely passion: Tango. When she’s not roaming the globe in search of adventure Erica teaches Queer Tango classes in Seattle and volunteers her time teaching girls to lead through local community centers and non-profits.
