Our very own Commander-in-Chic, Ryane Delka, will be one of the eight “stars” to dance at the sold-out event on March 29. From the tango to the zouk, she’ll display her best ballroom moves in front of more than 900 people in downtown Kansas City. (Doesn’t she already look polished and poised in this photo with partner Jesse Lopez?)
Cristo Rey is a private urban high school that provides college-prep education and an innovative work-study program for diverse students with economic need. Ryane first met Cristo Rey students when she was invited to speak at a jewelry design class. Inspired by the students’ enthusiasm for life and passion to learn, Ryane set goals not only to win the dance competition but to beat the Dancing with the Kansas City Stars fundraising record.
