Dance schools and dancers from around the area united for a common cause Sunday afternoon in Salina. “Dancers For Pediatric Cancer” brought them together to strut their stuff, and raise funds for cancer.
Some of the best dancers and groups from each school performed. Grade school aged dancers, adult dancers, and ages in between were all part of the event.
Dancers from area dance schools were joined by dancers from area colleges.
Performers included dancers from Vivette’s Dance Studio, Prestige School of Dance, Stepz Dance Company, Tamara Howe School of Dance, the Dance Company of Clay Center, the Euphoria Dance Center, the Ottawa County Dance Company, the K-State Tap Dance Ensemble, McPherson College dancers, Ellsworth Ballet, the Salina Bombshells Dance Team, the Cheer Fire squad, Salina YMCA Zumba, and Salina Parks and Recreation Dancers.
Family and friends came along to enjoy the show.
The show included everything from jazz to hip hop, hula and belly dancing, tap dancing, ballet, pom, musical theatre, and more.
There were also booths and vendors at “Dancers For Cancer”, selling dance and event-related items.
All proceeds will benefit the Love, Chloe Foundation’s “Monkey in My Chair” program. The program gives children battling cancer a money for their chair. Whenever the child is way from the school the monkey sits in their chair so their classmates will think of them.
