  • Husband and wife pair Laura Draycott (Wink-i-Wear) and Stephen Maser (Aura Wealth Management at Raymond James)

  • Martine Parent (Martini For all Occasions Wedding & Event Planning)
  • Marika Wolf(Re/Max Realty)
  • Shannelle Connell (Miss Universe Canada Delegate, International Speaker)
  • Sheri-Lee Turner-Krouzel and Curtis Krouzel (founders and proprietors, 50th Parallel Estate Winery)

An exciting addition this year as COHA celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Swinging with the Stars is with the addition of a new competition/category. There will be three teams participating with six to eight dancers in each team. The roster of teams includes:

  • Restore Vein & Skincare Centre
