éé an annual event that honors the king of rock in roll has had to make adjustments this year because of the coronavirus.

éé wcbi's chad groening has more.

éé dancing with the king is an annual dance competition that celebrates the legacy and music of elvis presley while raising money for dance and vocal education scholarships.

Due to the coronvirus this year's event will be virtual with no live audience.

All of the dance couples came to the elvis birthplace home to record their routines.

Tammy wilson is manager of the dance studio which puts on this event every year.

"i think that this year in particular we are limited in activities that people can participate in.

And so we have tried to find ways that people can participate in dance safely however their feelings are about it we still want to have a safe environment for everyone.

And i think that that has provided some relieve from the craziness of the world right now."

Wilson's dance partner in this year's competition is pol solanelles, who is both a student at the dance studio and a doctoral student in business management at ole miss.

He says elvis is very popular in his native spain.

"i remember listening to him when i was kid so when i found out that he was born here and that i had the chance now to dance here it was just really cool."

Another dance couple in this year's event are andrew davis and liz guenter.

Davis is a senior instructor at the dance studio.

He says having a virtual event has changed the feel a little bit.

"because normally we'd be able to perform to his music to a crowd and have crowd response.

But we actually get to do it in the birthplace this year the museum here and everything and it's just a fantastic experience getting to be so near his home and the birthplace.

It's a really good experience."

Guenter is another student at the dance studio, who has particpated in all six dancing with the king events.

"it's wonderful for anyone out there who's watching this who thinks they can't dance.

It's hopefully going to inspire them to come to the studio and try to learn themselve.

Children and everyone needs something uplifting to go on during all these crisis and everything.

And hopefully maybe there's somebody out there that i'll inspire so that's why i wanted to help."

And married couple ginger pizer and john hochberg came up from starkville to compete in this year's competition for the first time.

"it was great to have a dance goal in the middle of all of the situations that are going on to be able to have something to prepare for and perform right now is rare and exciting."

Her husband calls it a great distraction.

"we found that having to peform this routine which contained a lot of things we hadn't done before got us to focus and practice.

And so it's been a good preoccupation other than things like work and obviously the environment we've been forced to live in."
