Stamford, CT—Center Stage Dance Studio, located on High Ridge Road in Stamford, has recently pledged their support for The Andréa Rizzo Foundation’s nationwide fundraising effort, “Dance Across America.” The dance studio will hold a dance recital on Sunday, May 20, at the Palace Theatre at 61 Atlantic Street in Stamford, where students will dance to make a difference in the lives of fragile children.
“Dance Across America” is one of many fundraising efforts created by The Andréa Rizzo Foundation, a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization dedicated to bringing dance therapy to children with cancer and special needs in pediatric hospitals, including Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, public schools, and Ronald McDonald houses across the country. Created in memory of a young dance therapy graduate student and survivor of childhood cancer, killed by a drunk driver at the age of 24, the Foundation aspires to bring dancers together to blend dance and compassion. Dancers of all ages and in all parts of the country can make a difference in the lives of fragile children by doing what they love best…dancing!
Center Stage owner and director JoAnn LoRusso will over see 200 dancers ages 3 to 18, as they showcase their talents in various styles, including jazz, tap, ballet, and creative movement. The recital, open to the public, will take place at 1:00 p.m., and tickets will cost $24.00 for orchestra/grand tier seating and $22.00 for balcony seating, available at the door.
