Lloyd Levenson, Chief Executive Officer, Cooper Levenson Attorneys at Law

An accomplished trial attorney in complex casino regulatory matters, Lloyd Levenson is also heavily involved in community and philanthropic work. One organization that is important to him is the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality & Tourism (LIGHT) at Stockton University, which has a mission to provide a forum for public policy discussions regarding the gaming, hospitality and tourism industries in New Jersey. Married to wife Liane for the past 35 years, Lloyd has four children and five grandchildren. Though he acknowledges it was a “few” years ago, Lloyd was voted the best dancer in his high school class and can’t wait to hit the dance floor! If anyone can guess his three favorite things — all which begin with the letter “s” — he will save the last dance for them.

Carrie Reilly, Professional Dancer

A professional dancer, Carrie Reilly was greatly influenced by her older brother, whose Blavat-like disc jockey skills and playful dance moves to the best sounds of the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s inspired her to pursue a professional career in dance. In 2002, Carrie became a certified ballroom and Latin dance instructor, and partnered with her students to win several trophies from Pro AM competitions. In 2008, Carrie received more intensive training in waltz, tango, rumba, salsa, hustle and West Coast swing from Worldwide Dance Champions in both international and American styles. As a teacher, Carrie shares the importance of discipline, technique and fully focused sessions. And while keeping the integrity of partner dancing is very important to her, she can’t hide her smile, which shines from the pure enjoyment of dancing.
