Zeke Cribbs, Boogie Ballroom
Zeke and his wife Pamela are the owners of Boogie Ballroom. Zeke attended UW-Madison and studied Animal Science. It was there where Zeke fell in love with dance. Zeke was first exposed to dancing through an African Dance class at UW-Madison. His love for dancing grew and eventually led him to ballroom dancing at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Madison. While teaching at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Zeke regularly competed as a member of the National Dance Council of America with his lovely wife Pamela, as well as with his students. Shall We Dance has been a big part of their lives since they’ve lived in the Fox Valley. Zeke describes being part of the “Shall We Dance” event as an awesome experience. Using dancing as a tool to display the talents of the competitors for this cause has been very rewarding. The Sexual Assault Crisis Center holds such a critical role in our community and this is a great way to raise awareness for this important cause. Zeke looks forward to being a part of this event for years to come!
