Amazing Pictures from Major Rochester Dance Contest (Must See)
Saturday night's Dancing for the Arts, Take VII, was easily the most exciting dance experience of my life. Oh, and they raised $127,000! Whatever I might have expected, the level of creativity, energy, tricks, personality, and costumes absolutely blew the roof off the joint. You really need to see these pictures.
In case you're not familiar with it, Dancing for the Arts raises money for the Greater Rochester Arts and Culture Trust to benefit Youth Arts Education with an event much like Dancing for the Stars. Local celebrities and local professional dancers are paired up and compete. According to their website, grants provided to youth-oriented nonprofits has served over 207,000 youth. It's an amazing fundraiser for a vital cause...and I had a blast emceeing with Laura Lee from ABC 6 News.
