News 3 anchor Todd Corillo prepares for Dancing For Paws to benefit Virginia Beach SPCA

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - News 3 anchor Todd Corillo is getting ready to show off his dance skills to benefit shelter animals at the Virginia Beach SPCA.

Todd is one of more than a dozen local celebrities and community leaders partnered with dance professionals for the Dancing for Paws event on June 10th at Chrysler Hall.

For the best several months, Todd and his partner, Marie Rants from Rants Ballroom Company, have been practicing their dance routine.

The Virginia Beach SCPA partnered with Golden Slippers Dance Academy for the competition.

News 3's Barbara Ciara will also serve as Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening.

Eight trophies will be awarded: Best Male and Best Female - Beginner, Best Male and Female - Experienced for both Ballroom and Latin Categories.
