Birgitte Ryslinge and Robin Gintner

Birgitte Ryslinge is the President of Oregon Coast Community College and Robin Gintner is the Chief of Finance and Operations. While both are busy supporting and advancing the cause and mission of the College, they are committed to devoting the time (and the embarrassment) of a dancing competition to support the great cause of Samaritan House which provides such a vital service to the community. Birgitte has no background in dance whatsoever and in fact, once actually failed a “Disco dancing” class in college. She will rely heavily upon the patience and goodwill of Robin, who loved to dance as a child and had a brief opportunity to take ballet and tap lessons growing up. Robin has been involved for the last ten years with the community musical theatre group, Coastal Act Productions (CAP). Both Robin and Birgitte are “looking forward to learning a little Irish jig during this opportunity with Dancing with the Coastal Stars, and especially look forward to a forgiving audience! Look out Riverdance, here we come!”
