STAR: Lake Kowell

Lake Kowell grew up in Healdsburg and remembers the excitement of her peers when the Raven Theater opened its doors. She was a 15-year-old passenger driven by another teenager when they went off the road at Old Redwood Hwy. off ramp and the rest is her future.

Lake is passionate about her job as Disability Advocate at the Santa Rosa non-profit Disability Services & Legal Center. This work gives her the opportunity to connect with many vibrant communities throughout Northern California and help promote disability awareness. Being a Certified Peer Mentor through the Christopher Reeves Foundation allows her to share her experiences with those newly spinal cord injured.

As a long time art instruction volunteer at Athena House Womenís Treatment Center, she has had the pleasure of connecting with hundreds of women working towards change. In her spare time, she enjoys making art and road trips with her teenage daughter Ruby.

PRO: Tony Gutsch

Tony Gutsch, a Sonoma County native and local dance instructor, has been involved with dance for more than 25 years. Tonyís dance career began back in 1989 after taking a country two-step class at the Petaluma Recreation Center. After a four-week class, he became addicted to the movement and expression that dance had to offer and began formal training in couples dance including ballroom, Latin, country western, and swing. His dance addiction soon turned into a thriving career as Tony started competing, teaching, choreographing, and judging at dance conventions throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Tony is excited to be a part of this years í Dancing with the Stars at the Raven and looks forward to putting on a show for all of you with his amazing dance partner. Tony and Lake hope to gain your support through votes and donations that help support the arts in our local community.
