Local Stars Wow the Audience at the 2019 Dancing with the Watertown Stars

Kellie Spillane, a Watertown Middle School teacher, and Matt Davis perform a West Coast Swing during the 2019 Dancing with the Watertown Stars. Ten competitors hit the dance floor at the Hellenic Cultural Center Friday night, but only one could take home the 2019 Dancing with the Watertown Stars trophy. The amateur dancers came from a variety of places, whether born and bred town residents, working for a business or department in Watertown, or being a Watertown elected official. Each teamed up with one of the three professional dancers to put together his or her routine.
