Celebrity Dance Off

Duane Daines back in the spotlight… this time as a dancer



Duane’s Story…

“I hope they, and anybody else, will see that you can do whatever you want, no matter what.”

Duane Daines was four years old when his father sat him on his first horse and handed Duane the reins. Duane’s determination, tireless work ethic and natural abilities resulted in a 17-year professional rodeo career that produced 13 Canadian Finals Rodeo appearances and nine National Finals Rodeo appearances. An injury sidelined Duane from the sport he loved in the mid-90’s

“I was born and raised in Innisfail and travelled across North America in the rodeo world. I have always been proud of my roots here in Central Alberta and am happy to do my part, supporting Red Deer and the Canada Games Celebration Plaza. It was a real honor to be asked to be part of the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off. The easy way out would have been to gracefully decline. When I asked my best friend, my wife Cheryl, she said “Go for it!” It will definitely be a challenge for me but we all have to take on life’s challenges every day. I am so proud of my three daughters who are on their own life journey. I hope they, and anybody else, will see that you can do whatever you want, no matter what.”

Duane is dancing with professional dance partner Natalie Brooks.

CELEBRATING THE GOOD WORKS IN OUR COMMUNITY A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE The Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off (SCDO) is a community builder initiative that brings together the professional dance community, community leaders, the business community and many talented volunteers to build awareness and raise funds for the great works happening in our community. It's about Red Deer coming together to Share the Magic! RED DEER'S PREMIER ANNUAL GALA Every year 8 community leaders step out of their comfort zone accepting the challenge to raise $15,000 for a chosen charity and, with the assistance of a professional dance instructor, learn a dance routine which he/she will perform on the night of the event. It is a sold-out event! Over eight hundred people from all walks of life attend the event supporting their favourite dance couple and the chosen charity. By now the audience is hyped right up and eager to hit the dance floor so the evening closes with a public dance with the popular Calgary band Dr. Zeus and the Who!
