Dr. Joel Gordon is performing with dance pro, Kristin Elsbernd. They will be performing a swing style this evening. Joel’s dance story started when he moved to Mankato, 10 short years ago with his young family. He continues to be amazed by all “this great community continues to offer us.” Dr. Gordon is an award winning daddy-daughter dancer, he doesn’t consider dancing as his “sole” source of inspiration. He is inspired by the caliber of his fellow dancers, the DWTMS staff and is “inspired to use this forum to give back” to his great community. Dr. Gordon is employed as a family physician and Chief Medical Information Office with Mayo Clinic Health System. Outside of work, he is a confirmation leader at his church, enjoys working at the Women’s and Children’s Expo, the Mankato Marathon and credits his friends and neighbors for keeping him active and engaged outside of his career.
