If you think Dancing with the Stars-type competitions are only for professional athletes and B-level celebrities, think again. Earlier this spring students from the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University Ballroom Dance Club collaborated with members of the Sisters of St. Benedict of St. Joseph, Minnesota in a "Dancing with the Monastics" competition, reported Dave Schwartz on stcloudtimes.com (March 21, 2009). A panel of judges rated each couple, and ties were broken by applause from the audience of over 350.

“We were trying to do something to really connect monastics with students this year,” said Sister Molly Weyrens.
