Profession: Director of an environmental nonprofit and a dance instructor. He also is directing “Dancing with Ellsworth Stars.”
Dancing experience: “I started dancing when I was probably 13 and trained in ballet, jazz, modern dance. I performed professionally as a modern dancer. As I’ve gotten older I’ve kind of transitioned more into social dance like ballroom.”
Lamon teaches private dance lessons and classes through adult education and local dance studios.
On his partner: “She has a great work ethic,” he said. “It’s easy to work with her. She keeps trying until she gets it.”
Prediction: “Ready or not, we’re going to put on a good show,” Lamon said. He said he hopes the event not only raises money for The Grand, but also inspires more people to dance.
