Meet Isle Casino Cape Girardeau’s Happy Dancer Chris Williams
Happy souls have happy feet. That’s especially true when it comes to Isle of Capri® Casino employees. Back in May, each Isle of Capri Casino hosted a dance competition among their employees in search of that property’s “Happy Dancer.”
Here at Isle® Casino Cape Girardeau, we were thrilled to announce Chris Williams, a fabulous cook in our kitchen, as our casino’s very own “Happy Dancer.”
Between June 12 and 30, Chris went head to head with the 14 other dancers from sister casino properties to compete for the Ultimate Happy Dance-Off spot. While Chris didn’t bring home the gold, he’s a champion to us and we are incredibly proud of him!
“I have been working for the Isle Casino now for a year and I entered the dance off because I wanted to live out my dancing days again,” Chris said.
The competition has made him somewhat of a celebrity around the Isle.
“One morning I came in to work and someone was asking me if I was the dancer in the competition,” Chris said. “I said ‘Yes! That's me.’ She immediately asked to see some moves. Then I started dancing for her right in the middle of the hallway. The casino treated me like a celebrity. It was awesome!"
Dancing is in Chris’ bones. In fact, he got his start with break dancing.
"I learned to breakdance in high school where I met my crew that had the same interests as me. We would practice hours daily to get better,” he said.
In the end, the Happy Dance-off championship went to Jerome M., an employee at the Isle of Capri® Casino Lake Charles, but we couldn’t be more proud of Chris and his awesome break dancing moves. We think he rocked!
