Local celebrities are preparing to twirl around the ballroom at the Chattanooga convention center for Dare to Dance 2016.

Channel 3's very own, promotions director, Ronnie Minton is one of the celebrity dancers this year.

Ronnie is teaming up with pro dancer Amy Sanders to compete in the dance competition and help raise money for the Kidney Foundation of Chattanooga.

This is a look at the pair practicing their moves.

The event is sold out, but you can still donate. All of the money raised for the local Kidney Foundation stays with it to help our own, here in the Tennessee Valley.
