BANGOR - The new season of 'Dancing With the Stars' starts Monday, March 19, on ABC, but the new cast has nothing on Maine's own Dancing For the Stars competitors, who are slated to perform at the Bangor Civic Center on March 17. The fundraiser, which benefits the Phillips Strickland House, a non-profit retirement home, teams up well-known locals with trained dancers from the Robinson Ballet.

"We have such a great mix of professionals and stars from the community that the enthusiasm from this group is just infectious. They're just gung-ho," said Karen Higgins of Phillips Strickland House.

Maria Baeza, an American Folk Festival board member, is one of the local stars that will be performing at the event. She and her dance partner, David Lamon of Ellsworth, will be doing a tango routine.
