Staffing matchmaker and dancer Julie Pearson

Extra, extra, read all about it! Julie Pearson, Regional Director of our staffing agency, will be dancing up a storm once again! She has been sponsored by Masiello Employment Services to cut a rug this month as Dancing With The Keene Stars (DWTKS) makes its long-awaited return. 

Modeled after the hit Reality TV dance competition, DWTKS is a local fundraiser where members of our community who are inexperienced in the ways of dance, are given a few lessons and battle it out for the crown.  

The Stars Return 

In recent years, the event was placed on hiatus just a few weeks before its 2020 showing in light of the pandemic and has remained in waiting ever since. Now with public health looking brighter, the event is in full swing, with guest stars learning the salsa and other dance moves as we speak.

For Julie, this will be her second time participating, the first having been in 2019. This time around she is dancing with partner Erik Kress, the principal of Franklin Elementary School. The pair will be performing the triple swing to the Beatles rendition of “Twist and Shout.”

Along with some friendly competitive dancing, the event is also a partnership with the Keene High School Project Graduation Fundraiser and The Keene Sentinel. The proceeds are designated to keep students safe on graduation night by providing safe and fun activities. Learn all about this program and watch the stars practice in this video.

Don’t Miss the Fun!

As always, the competition is a light-hearted and friendly event, with winners chosen by the audience. It’s going to be a fantastic time for the guest stars and for the community. We encourage you to join in the fun by attending at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. Let’s raise funds for this wonderful cause!

Our team of Staffing Managers at Masiello love connecting with the community, not only through smart staffing solutions but through volunteering, community service and collaboration. 

It’s dedication to the close-knit residents of the Monadnock area and surrounding regions that makes our sweet corner of the world such a great place to live and work. Through building strong networks through events like this, we’re also cultivating the kind of place where businesses, individuals, and of course, our students thrive. We’d love to see you there!
