FERNDALE - Whatcom County residents who want to see their local pastor or police officer bust a move will have a chance at the Dance Bellingham Dance competition Saturday, Nov. 10.

This year, five local couples will compete, each in a different style of dance, ranging from line dancing to hip hop. Competitors include last year's winning couple, First Presbyterian Church Head Pastor Doug Bunnell, and his wife, Laurie, who owns a home staging business. Here are the other competitors:
- Roosevelt Community Church Pastor Kurt Ingram and his wife, Carol.
- Whatcom County Realtor Chet Kenoyer and his daughter, Gina.
- Bellingham Police Officer Jon Knutsen and his wife, Megan, who works at Dermatology & Laser Center Northwest.
- General surgeon Keith VanderGriend and his wife, Cindy, who teaches preschool.
The couples trained for two months with help from Bellingham's Dancing for Joy studio.?
