‘Dancing’ talents raise spirits, too



More than 600 guests got the chance to see “Dancing With the Stars” personality Mark Ballas (above right) move to the beat at AdMeTech Foundation’s “Dance for a Cure” at the Westin on Saturday night. Co-sponsored by Arthur Murray International, the benefit for prostate cancer research drew “Dancing With the Stars” talent Anna Trebunskaya, who’s been paired with Chuck Liddell and Drew Lachey; Jonathan Roberts, who’s danced with Macy Gray and Marie Osmond; and Louis van Amstel, who came in third in season 9 when he danced with Kelly Osbourne. Also at the event were dance champion and “Dancing With the Stars” choreographer Nick Kosovich (left) and WCVB-TV’s Susan Wornick, the night’s emcees. Worth noting: Ballas also sang at the event, but he didn’t seem very happy with his performance. “Flying home from what was probably the worst sounding gig I have ever played,” he tweeted to fans on Sunday.
