The fifth annual Dancing With The Stars – Fort Mill was held at The Pointe Arts and
Recreation Center Saturday, drawing a crowd of more than 400 people, said event
co-chair Lisa McCarley.
“It’s not just a show, it’s a social gala,” she said.
Dancing with the Stars is the Fort Mill School District Athletic Board’s biggest yearly
fundraiser for local sports. Since the school board was able to once again include
middle school athletics as a budgeted item this year, proceeds from Saturday’s
event will be split 50-50 among middle school and high school programs, McCarley
said.
“We appreciate all the support we get from the community,” she said. “All the
people that step up to make this event what it is are amazingly talented.”
The night’s big winner was co-owner of Moseley Architects’ Dan Mace, who joined
this year’s competition late after Tega Cay City Manager Charlie Funderburk had to
withdraw due to injury.
Mace and his partner Gabriela Sevillano of Dance Center USA took home both the
Dance Champion trophy, honoring the couple with the highest dance scores, and
the Mirror Ball Trophy, which is given to the night’s overall winner for dance points,
crowd appeal and fundraising success.
“I’m shocked,” Mace said. “It’s like a bucket list item. It’s for a great cause.”
Sevillano said she was just happy for her partner.
“I’m very proud of Dan; he did an amazing job,” she said. “He wanted it, he saw it
and he succeeded in it.”
The duo was the only couple to receive a perfect score of 30 for the night for their
freestyle performance set to the “Phantom of the Opera.” Other dances included a
Michael Jackson “Thriller” piece featuring school board member Michele Branning
and her partner Willie Frazier and a rock and roll dance by Chuck Boozer and
Sevillano.
The night also featured the Springfield Middle School Dance Team in a Star Wars-
themed performance and young guest dancers Lydia McCarter, 7, and Andre
Ziskind, 8 and Lauren Cookman and Jason Long.

Wayne and Cynthia Vinson also took to the dance floor. The couple began dance
as a hobby and fell in love with it, using it as a way to grow closer after an accident
left Wayne blind, said Tommy Schmolze, the night’s master of ceremonies.
Judge Patti Mercer, former Mrs. South Carolina International and a previous
contestant of Dancing with the Stars – Fort Mill, said it takes time and effort to have
a successful performance.
“It’s a lot scarier dancing in front of your peers and community,” she said. “Every
year, the dancers get better and better.”
For the first time, many members of the school board were able to attend Dancing
with the Stars and support one of their own, McCarley said. In past events, most
board members were at an annual conference.
“It’s nice to have them there this year,” she said.
Branning said she is glad to have been a part of supporting school sports.
“It’s been quite an experience,” she said. “I’m so glad I did it. Athletics are near and
dear to me.”
