Eau Claire Dentist's Role in Dancing With The Eau Claire Stars Helps Raise More Than $34,000 for Local Children's Theater

EAU CLAIRE, WI--(Marketwired - September 29, 2014) - Dr. Sean Tarpenning, a highly recommended Eau Claire cosmetic dentist, was one of several local celebrities who participated in the sixth annual Dancing With The Eau Claire Stars event this month to raise money for the Eau Claire Children's Theatre.

The event, which has become one of Eau Claire's most anticipated fundraisers, raised more than $34,000 this year. Dr. Tarpenning put in six weeks of training and choreography instruction with a dance partner in order to learn two routines for the event, which was held on Sept. 12. Community members purchased tickets and local companies purchased tables during the night dedicated to celebrating the arts.

"I've always been heavily involved in sports, so this was something completely different for me, but it was an incredible experience from start to finish," said Dr. Tarpenning, who provides affordable dental implants for Eau Clarie area residents at Hebert Dental. "We had a blast with our dances, and as a lover of theater, I'm happy to give my support for the local arts anyway that I can."

The annual local fundraising event is based on the popular ABC show "Dancing With The Stars" and features two rounds of dancing for every dance couple. This year, contestants were asked to compose a Latin-inspired dance and a freestyle dance. Dr. Tarpenning was partnered with a veteran dance performer, Rachael McIlquham.

"I had the benefit of having an incredible dance partner, so when it came time to perform, we both just tried to have a great time out there," said the Eau Claire dentist.
