Todd Simenson is dancing with Jinelle Themig as part of the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off 2018 on April 14. Photo supplied.

Simenson the engineer can dance!

Todd Simenson says it’s a little-known fact engineers can dance, and at the Sheraton Celebrity Dance off 2018, he wants to show the world exactly that. Simenson is vice-president, regional leader Canada (Alberta North & Territories), at Stantec in Red Deer. He has been part of the community for 19 years, and he is always proud of how everyone comes together to support good causes.

Celebrity: Todd Simenson

Partner: Jinelle Themig

1. What is the one fear you have when you dance in front of the crowd?

I hope to overcome my mind and not blank when I step onto the dance floor!

2. What would you like others to know about this experience?

That I am getting nothing but encouragement and support from everyone in the community and that I can do it.

3. Do you watch Dancing with the Stars?

I do and I love it! I also love watching So You Think You Can Dance, but I have learned that it’s way easier to “Think you can Dance” than actually “dancing.”

4. When this experience is behind you, what will you remember the most/miss the most?

Supporting our community and our youth in a unique and positive way, and I know I will miss my dancing lessons with Jinelle.

5. Would you call yourself a dancer now and in the future?

People say I can dance, and I truly love to dance like no one else watching. But I have quickly learned choreographed dancing is not as easy as it looks. I know after this experience, I will be a much better and confident dancer.

Other dancers include: Duane Daines, Troy Gillard, Mellisa Hollingsworth, Cari MacLean, Carla MacLeod, Cindy Madrusiak and John Young.
