ORyan and Sophie!
ORyan and Sophie!

What’s up?!?! I am ORyan, host of the Morning Grind on Peoria’s 92.3.

It has been a fun, busy, awesome year so far and I am ready to cap it off with a bang! November 2nd, I will be ballroom dancing for CASAblanca: Dancing with the Local Stars!

The fancy night filled with food, drinks, and dancing takes place November 2nd at Paradice Hotel & Casino… and I want you there!

Email me ( so I can get you tickets to watch me slay my cha-cha with my dance partner Sophie!

We are dancing to Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” and it’s going to be sweet!

If you are asking yourself, “Can ORyan really dance?” You can find the answer here.

And if you aren’t familiar with CASA or CASAblanca:

CASA of the Tenth’s primary fundraising event of the year is a fun-filled evening of food, music, and entertainment. The evening features local celebrities paired with dance specialists from the Peoria area. Dance partners vie for the coveted “Critics Choice Award” the night of the fundraiser. The “People’s Choice Award” is determined by online voting in advance and during the fundraiser. Following the competition, the dance floor is opened and event attendees join in the dancing fun.

Proceeds from the event support the specially trained CASA volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children in the Tenth Judicial Circuit, which includes Peoria, Tazewell, Marshall, Putnam and Stark Counties.

This is one of the bigger endeavors I have taken on to help raise money for a great cause in central Illinois! My body is sore, our rehearsals are intense, and Sophie and I are in it to win it! We just need you there to cheer us on.

So, email me ( to inquire about getting tickets and get ready to have a blast November 2nd!
