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.

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.
