Lake Washington High School Dance, along with eight other high school dance teams in Washington, will host its first annual “Drea’s Dream: Friday Night Lights” event, which will showcase a wide variety of dance styles throughout the night. Lindsey Beck will oversee the event, which will take place on Friday, August 24 on the Lake Washington High School football field, located at 12033 NE 80th Street.
“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 Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, 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!
The Drea’s Dream: Friday Night Lights event will be hosted by Emerald City Productions and will feature burgers by BUNS and ice cream sandwiches from Sweet Wheels. The event will begin at 6:00pm, and a $5 minimum donation will be required for admission, with proceeds benefiting Dance Across America. A photo booth provided by Division1Studios will also be featured at the event, in addition to T-shirt sales and games throughout the night.
