Betty Drennen attended the University of Alabama where she met her husband Jerry Drennen and studied art, music and theater.  She has been a long-time supporter of First Light, serving as an overnight volunteer from its beginning in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church.  She has been a board member and has contributed in many other ways to support the homeless community. She has also served on the altar guild and as a deacon for Independent Presbyterian Vhurch.  Singing with the Junior League choral group has been a joyful way for her to share her talents with the Birmingham community.  Betty is now known as G.G. to her three children, eight grand-children and five great-grands who keep her quite busy and going strong at age 91.

Henry Scott is thrilled to join Betty Drennen in Dancing with the Stars of the Magic City.  Henry was born in Savannah, Georgia, and began dancing at the age of twelve.  He spent the last forty years as a performer/director/choreographer/musician and teacher.  As a director and choreographer his work has been seen on stages across the United States.  As an artist Henry performed on Broadway and toured extensively in the United States, Canada and Central Europe.  As a teacher he spent six years as the Director of Theatre at Woodward Academy and eight years on the faculty at Kennesaw State University.  Henry came to Birmingham four years ago as the Artist in Residence at Red Mountain Theatre Company.  He fell in love with Birmingham and has decided to make it his home.  Henry's greatest love is sharing music and movement with people of all ages.
