Student dancers from across the Northeast came together on Sunday, March 18, 2018, for the annual Stars of Tomorrow event and raised a record-breaking $32,978.
They gathered at the Concert Hall at the State University of New York’s Purchase College in Purchase, NY, to showcase their talent in a professional and fun setting like no other performance opportunity.
