Dancing with the Wayne County All Stars Heating Up


Phill Johnston and Tyler Barwick

Since late last year, organizers of the Wayne Educational Network and its upcoming second annual Dancing with the Wayne County Stars, has been quietly rehearsing. 

With the 2011 event at Walnut Creek being nothing short of a smash, the 2012 venue has been moved to the Goldsboro Family Y to accommodate the huge crowd expected to attend and watch contestants perform.

And it’s the most expensive ticket in Goldsboro.  Where typically events like reverse raffles are $100 per pair, the Dancing event to benefit education is $100 each.  And according to organizers, ticket sales are brisk. 

Couples compete on two fronts.  First, it’s a fundraiser.  By going to Wayne Education Network dot org, you’ll be able to link to the Dancing website and see all of the couples and make donation online.

The other part of the competition is based on performance.  And that effort is being led again by Dr. Charles Zwerling who owns the Top Hat Ballroom Dance Studio.  His energy and talent have guaranteed the Wayne Education Network a quality show.

If you want to see the couples and contribute, look for this story on Goldsboro Daily News dot com.  Curtis Media is supporting the team of Phillip Johnston, an Account Executive for the stations, and Mount Olive Chamber of Commerce President Tyler Barwick.

  1. Great article. Rumor has it that Phill’s popping his chewing gum is not helping his “dance relationship” with Miss Tyler. I understand that some of their practice preparations have become rather volatile and confrontational. But again these are just rumors………
