This is an email I got from a friend just now. I don't really get to watch Dancing with the Stars so I didn't even know about these 2 amazing Filipino-American kids.
Anyway, they will be in DWTS tomorrow - Wednesday, May 13, 2008. They are one of the 3 pairs competing and the result will be based solely on VIEWERS Votes.
Below is the email about this.
The Philippine Consulate General is extending this request for support/votes for Jaryd and Cara in the next Dancing with the Stars episode on May 13th! Thank you.
Honorable Consul General Cecilia Rebong,
I would like to inform you of the recent accomplishments of a young Fil-Am Ballroom couple, Jaryd Tyler Farcon and Cara Abaya-Campos... I would also like to ask for your support as they proudly represent the Philippines as a rising amateur ballroom couple.
Jaryd, who is 10 years old, is the son of Drs. Cayetano & Armie Farcon of Princeton , NJ .
Cara is 8 years old and is the daughter of Walden & Irene Campos of Nutley , NJ .
They have been dancing together competitively for the past 14 months under the direction and coaching of Spencer Nyemchek and have already captured the 2007 United States National Title in International Latin in the Preteen Age division.
Jaryd & Cara have been featured twice on the Maury Show and won the Maury’s Most Talented Kids contest and also appeared on NBC’s TODAY show last December 2007. Their most recent appearance was on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars on April 15, 2008, where they captured the 10 year old and under category and are scheduled to dance next week on May 13, 2008 in the Finals of the Junior segment of Dancing with the Stars. They are 1 of 3 couples competing for the Championship Title. Next weeks show results are based solely on viewer votes.
This dynamic pair has been very busy making public appearances and showcasing at various fundraising events and cultural gatherings. They are scheduled to perform at the Phil-US Expo ‘08 on May 17-18 and at the Philippine Independence Day Cultural Show in NYC on June 1.
I would like to thank you in advance for all your support!
Cayetano Farcon, D.M.D
Armie Farcon, D.M.D.
