Dréa’s dream was to help children through dance therapy


The Andréa Rizzo Foundation was established in memory of Andréa Rizzo, a beautiful young woman who survived childhood cancer and was tragically killed by a drunk driver at age twenty-four. 

Andréa’s dream was to become a dance therapist and give children with cancer and disabilities the gift of dance. With the support of many, her dream has become a reality.

The Andréa Rizzo Foundation is the only 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization in the United States that provides grants which directly fund dance/movement therapy programs, named Dréa’s Dream, exclusively for children with cancer and special needs in schools and renowned hospitals nationwide. Programs are led by registered Dance/Movement Therapists (R-DMT and BC DMT).

Our goal is to foster Andréa’s dream of helping children with cancer and special needs through the physical, social and emotional benefits of dance.
