"We are dedicating our 2013 Teach-a-Thon and Team Match to AdMeTech's research and education programs leading the way in the advancement of early detection of prostate cancer," said Mark Lightner , New England and New York Area Chair of Arthur Murray. "Women have life-saving mammograms. Men deserve Manograms®."

In addition, Nick Kosovich , the show's choreographer, former cast member and Arthur Murray coach will serve as the night's co-MC alongside ABC/WCVB anchor Susan Wornick .
