Terry Caporiccio is excited.

On Friday, March 14, she will be dancing with the stars. Not the TV show, but a fund-raiser for the Watertown Education Foundation.

Mrs. Caporiccio is a secretary at the Cunniff School. She is one of seven Watertown celebrities competing. Also dancing will be Lisa Keuchkarian (The Talk Restaurant), Renee Gaudette (Watertown Boys and Girls Club); Ron LeSanto (Watertown Savings Bank), Phil Oates (Watertown Middle School), Elaine Antonellis (Cunniff), and Peter Centola (Watertown Recreation Department).

They are each paired with a professional dance instructor from Avalon Dance Studio in Belmont. Her partner is Matt.

“I’m excited,” Mrs. Caporiccio said. “There’s going to be a red carpet.”

Usually when she is at the Cunniff, she is sitting at her desk or working on her computer.

She learned to dance when she was 11 and she has competed in dance competitions before. She danced for eight years. She did the tango, salsa, swing, and cha-cha. She said she is doing a cha-cha at the event.

She said Amy Donohue, who works at the Cunniff and for the Watertown Education Foundation, came up with the idea for the fund-raiser. Mrs. Caporiccio said she volunteered and then was picked.

“I’m doing it because it’s fun,” she said. “And the Watertown Education Foundation raises money for the schools.

“It’s not about winning, it’s about having fun and raising money.”

“Dancing with the Stars” will be held Friday, March 14, at American Legion Post 440 in Newton. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are $25 or $35 (gold circle) per person. No tickets will be sold at the door. To buy tickets, go to the Watertown Education Foundation website at http://watertowned.org/. The dancing competition starts at 7:30 p.m.
