EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Here's your next chance to vote for an EB star dance team - Choreographer Stephanie Palm will dance with EB Star BOE President Dr. Brad Cohen at the "main event" on October 4 at the EBPAC at Hammarskjold School.

Stephanie Palm has been dancing for 22 years. She studied at Montclair State University as a dance major and has been part of Artistic Visions Dance Company for the past three years, both performing as well as setting original choreography. Stephanie was the choreographer for the Young Adult Charity Players for the past two seasons. She has been teaching dance of all styles and ages at First Position School of Dance for the past seven years, and plans to continue her career as a dancer and choreographer.

Here's what Dr. Brad Cohen says about his particpation in Dancing with the EB Stars: "I will never forget my first dancing lesson at the age of eight – the instructor told my mother that she should save her money! I have been a New Jersey resident all my life. My wife, Penny, and I moved to East Brunswick about 25 years ago. Like most folks, we moved here primarily because of the superior reputation of the public school system. We are both physicians with offices in the area. Our two children, Rachel and Daniel, are proud graduates of our schools.

With no children at home, I have devoted my time to my community. In 2010, I was elected to the East Brunswick Board of Education and presently serve as its President. We are all part of a great town, with a great school system. We are blessed with many supporters who have devoted so much time to our youth. Thanks to the EBEF and please join me in a prayer to not make an utter fool of myself at the show."

Here's how to vote for Stephanie and Brad and put them on the top of the list for this East Brunswick Education Foundation fundraiser.  Every dollar is a vote; every vote goes to support the East Brunswick Schools.
