You may have heard Vinnie Taylor on the radio in the mornings in central Alberta, but it might be the first time you will see him dancing in a sparkly outfit.
Taylor, a Sylvan Lake resident, is one of the celebrity dancers at the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off 2019.
Taylor, 55, will be dancing an energetic and aggressive performance at the show with dance partner Oyla Joseph, who he describes as patient and encouraging.
He will be seen in tight pants and a sparkly jacket, the new dancer said in an interview, with a chuckle.
The Real Wake-Up show on Real Country 95.5 co-host said although learning to dance has been challenging, he encourages future event dancers to join the cause, because it’s also a lot of fun.
“I have absolutely zero dance experience, so it’s a lot to learn, memorize and you practise without music. And you think you can do it, and then with music, it’s a million times faster,” he said.
Although Taylor isn’t nervous about being on stage right now, he said he probably will be the night before the big performance.
Fundraising has been another challenge, but something Taylor is proud to have taken on: because the money goes towards supporting central Albertans and their health-care needs.
“As everybody knows, the economy hasn’t exactly bounced back yet… I appreciate every single dime.”
