SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - Coming up this weekend 19th Can Dance Competition. Every year the CAN Community Health fundraiser is one of the hottest, most popular events on the Suncoast. It's based on the popular tv show "Dancing with the Stars". But Can calls theirs "Dancing with Our Stars".

It pairs Suncoast celebrities and community leaders with professional dancers and just like "Dancing with the Stars", they compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy. Some of the tops dancers from this year's Can Dance show off their moves on Suncoast View, and then they teach the Suncoast View Hosts how to dance like the stars. The mission of CAN Community Health is to provide a continuum of medical, social and education services essential to the health and well-being of those living with HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, sexually transmitted diseases, other diseases and to enhance public awareness. Can Dance is Saturday night Oct. 20th, at Art Ovation Hotel.
