MEET THE DANCERS
One of the most exciting parts about this event, is that all of the featured dancers are our community members! On that stage, supporting our cause, you will see your neighbors, friends, local business owners, and proud supporters of CES. We are so grateful for all of our participating dancers and can't wait to see what they have prepared for us. Below you will meet each team and have access to their voting link! During the event, you will be able to cast your vote for your favorite team by making a donation to CES. As always, all proceeds go to Community Entry Services.

Haylee Cole & Daniel Barnes
Sponsored by Bailey Tires
A Lander native, Haylee now works at the Department of Education for Vision Outreach right in her hometown Lander.
In her free time, she juggles coaching youth soccer with her love for bowling, and is always kept on her toes chasing down her 5 year old son. Her on the go personality is surely preparing her dancing feet for the performance of a lifetime!
Daniel is branch manager at the Fort Washakie Central Bank & Trust. Together with Haylee at Lander Valley High School, he started Future Business Leaders of America. Daniel and his wife Katrina now have 3 children, love bowling, camping, and spending time with their extended family.
Crystal Hastings &
Sponsored by Lander Body Works & Schurg Financial Services
Along with being the medical social worker at the Wind River Dialysis Center, Crystal is a Zumba instructor at Lander Bodyworks. The youngest of 6 children, she’s used to coming up from behind, so may well lead Courtney into 1st place! Chocolate, listening to people’s stories, and surprises are 3 of her favorite things.
Courtney has been an elementary art teacher in Lander for ten years. When she isn’t giving 5 year olds glue and scissors (and praying nothing bad will happen), she is home with her two young boys and her man-child husband, or at the gym teaching Zumba. Courtney jumped at the chance to to put on a show that benefits CES and Fremont County!
Matt Hartman & Charene Herarra
Sponsored by High Mountain Seasonings
Charene the Adventure Queen is usually traveling or outdoors, mainly fly fishing. She was born in Wyoming but lived most of her life in Montana. She loves being involved in community events so jumped at the chance to try the dance floor. Since she’s working for the County 10 radio stations, let’s hope she isn’t bribing fellow DJ, judge Vince Tropea!
A musician, singer, dancer, and actor, Matt comes to the dance floor straight from the CWC stage. Matt learned how to Tango while trimming trees in Oregon. He is in this year’s CWC Carousel musical, local jazz bands, CWC's Concert Band and the Fremont Symphony Orchestra. We’ll see how he can handle this rowdy audience!
Hunter Bradshaw & Maycee Manzanares
Sponsored by Teton Therapy
Born and raised in Riverton, Maycee spent 10 years on the dance floor. She went from balancing on her toes to juggling marketing at Teton Therapy for the past 4 years. Besides spending as much time as possible outdoors, she loves helping people and raising funds for CES fits perfectly.
Hunter works as a therapy tech at Teton Therapy while dedicating time to get his docotrate in Physical Therapy. As he and Maycee say, “We get down to help people get up!” Hopefully the time Hunter spends fishing, skiing, archery, and hunting keeps him in good enough shape to keep up with Maycee’s dance moves.
Austin Penny &
Sponsored by Wyoming Catholic College
Austin Penny is 19 years old and from Saratoga Springs, NY. He is in his Sophomore year at Wyoming Catholic College. A fun fact about Austin is that he has 12 siblings spanning ages 20-1! His interests are rowing, shooting, dancing, and reading. He has been dancing for over a decade on and off but in the last year he started a swing dance club at WCC that focuses primarily on dips, tricks and aerials. We can’t wait to see what moves he has in store!
Hayley is originally from Atlanta, GA, but is currently a student at Wyoming Catholic College. Over the past couple of years, she has continued to fall in love with swing, two-step, and waltz at the dances run by WCC. On top of her new found love for dance, Hayley also loves everything to do with the outdoors, especially backpacking and climbing. She is also an avid reader and is particularly enjoying all of the books her curriculum requires. It always brightens her day to see CES next door and know that they are helping a lot of people and is really looking forward to her first ever Dancing with the Stars performance that supports such a great non-profit!
Regan Marynowski & Alison McIntosh
Sponsored by Home Source
Regan Marynowski is a teacher and the owner of Street Dance in Riverton. She has recently extended Main Street Dance with a second location in Lander. She was born and raised in Riverton and returned home in 2024 to take over the studio from her prior mentor and has taken the opportunity to grow that for the past 19 years. She is the mother of three children who occupy the rest of the time she has outside of the "studio family" she has created. She has been a performer of Dancing with the Stars in Casper, Wyoming and has been a coach for many teams with Dancing with Stars in Lander. Not only is she excited to perform with her long time friend and teacher Alison, she is excited to perform for Dancing with Starts to benefit CES. Her oldest brother is one of her biggest fans and had been a part of CES during his childhood. She is hoping to raise as much as she can for this amazing organization.
Alison is a 4th grade math teacher at Rendezvous Elementary School in Riverton. When she’s not in the classroom, she can be found in the kitchen cooking dinner for her blended family, in the car chauffeuring children from here to there, or in the crowd at a theater or gymnasium supporting her family during their sporting events and musical endeavors. Alison also squeezes in teaching tap dance at Main Street Dance, owned and operated by her dance partner. She is honored to add DWTS to her schedule to support such a great cause and raise money for CES!
