So You Think You Can Dance Like a Little

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the extensive involvement from youth and community leaders for Are You Smarter Than a Little?, we decided to postpone the 2020 event and instead introduce a new virtual “pop-up” event called, So You Think You Can Dance Like a Little. 

This event showcased dance moves from a few of our Littles along with a few area community leaders this past November. Dancers included Amanda Young with Bankers Trust; Ed McGill with McGill Junge Wealth Management; Lou Sipolt and Jackie Schmillien with Iowa Live – CW Iowa 23; Keesha Ward with Drake University sponsored by Nationwide; Littles: Gabby, Joscelin, Gracie, and Aaliyah Laurie; and our very own CEO, Renee Hardman. Congratulations to the winner: Ed McGill!


Thanks to all of our sponsors and voters, we raised close to $20,000 for BBBSCI mentoring programs! Special shoutout to Littles, Anthony and Alex, for emceeing our event. Please click here to watch the dance videos!
