Susan Scott, a resident of Captiva and Ft. Myers, has developed such a love for dancing after her first experience in "Dancing With The Island Stars" two years ago. She claims her passion for dancing has put her life totally out of balance but continues to tell herself, "Do it while you can!"
Scott is a dedicated competitor and now competes in all 24 smooth and rhythm dances in the American and International styles. In the past year she and her partner, David Flory from Fred Astaire, have competed in Bermuda, Las Vegas, New York City, all stops in Florida and will be heading to San Francisco in March.
Their true excitement was having the opportunity to travel to Ireland and London in October. This past weekend Susan and David competed in The Freddy Ball in Boca Raton, the Academy Awards of dancing. To both their surprises, Susan won Top Bronze, Top Competitor, Top Female Student and the Top Overall Competitor for 2011. Not to be out done by Susan, David was awarded 3rd Top Instructor and Top Choice Instructor.

Again this season, "Dancing With the Island Stars" was such a wonderful success and Susan enjoyed watching each star begin to develop their own love of dance. She is rumored to say that plans are in the works to open a dance studio on Sanibel. She cannot stress enough that dancing is so much more that learning steps, it covers every aspect of personal growth and health.
The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company was pleased to be a major sponsor of this years' event and delighted that SCTC President, Terry Igo won top honors in the competition.
