“DANCE ACROSS AMERICA” is a concept designed to support Dréa’s Dream, a pediatric dance therapy / expressive movement program benefiting children with cancer and special needs in pediatric hospitals across the country as well as Ronald McDonald Houses and public schools. It is a unique way of combining DANCE and COMPASSION to help children with cancer and special needs. All dancers will have a chance to make a difference in the lives of fragile children by simply holding a benefit performance OR collecting pledges for as many or as few hours of dance as they would like. Be creative! Hold any kind of meaningful dance event that you’d like! We’ll help you to get started!
