Dance Your Dreams! Spring Recital

Dance Your Dreams! Spring Recital: Sunday, June 14 at 4 p.m.
Tickets: $15, all proceeds benefit the program

We are so very proud to present our Dance Your Dreams! Spring Recital and honor these special children who continue to amaze us every week.

As many of you know, this program is the cornerstone of Merrimack Hall's outreach, and to date we have given back more than $40,000 to the community through Dance Your Dreams! alone. Each week, children with a range of special needs from Cerebral Palsy and autism to cancer and Down Syndrome come to our dance studio and participate in a dance class suited to their needs. All dancers are paired with their own volunteer who helps them execute the movements they would otherwise be unable to perform. All classes, costuming and dance attire are provided to these families at no cost to them.

This recital will showcase these beautiful dancers, and also feature performances from other local arts organizations like the Alabama Youth Ballet, Heidi Knight School of Dance, and Susan's School of Dance. Both Dance Your Dreams! classes will perform two numbers each: "Rockin' Robin," "A Whole New World," "Under the Sea," and "Going to the Chapel."

Please come show your support for these amazing children and their yearlong achievements. All tickets are $15 and proceeds will directly benefit the Dance Your Dreams! program.
