2022 Dancing Stars of Columbus

Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Over 5 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 15 million individuals are acting as caregivers. It’s time to take action and change the course of this epidemic!  Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Dancing Stars of Columbus Georgia is our annual fundraising competition that culminates the night of the gala where our fundraisers, local Star Dancers, are coupled with professional dancers to further compete in a dancing challenge. Star Dancer cast mates vie for two coveted Mirror Ball trophies: The People’s Choice Award for the highest fundraising total and The Judge’s Choice Award for the highest scored dance couple of the evening.
