JAN 28Fundraiser - Dancers Helping Dancers
Stairway of the Stars and Maywood Fine Arts is proud to announce Dancers Helping Dancers, a fundraising showcase. This performance will celebrate the young and rising stars of Chicago area dance and their commitment to help a dance school in need.
A year and a half ago Stairway of the Stars burned down. Even though they lost their dance space, they didn’t lose their spirit. Since that time they have been dancing at a nearby church, but the dream of having their own dance space again still stands strong. “We really want a permanent home to call our own and so we are hosting a showcase to help raise money. We are dancing for our dream and 17 Chicagoland dance school are dancing with us!” explains Heidi Renteria, Stairway of the Stars dance teacher.
The showcase will be at Trinity High School in River Forest on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 4:00 pm. Tickets sold at the door for $10. The money will be going directly to building a new dance studio. This show will certainly show off the talent and spirit of young Chicago dancers and the community in which they have committed to help.
