Student dancers from across the Northeast came together on Sunday, February 24, 2019, for the annual Stars of Tomorrow event and raised a record-breaking $35,319.
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-quality and fun performance opportunity. Participating studios shared several of their signature numbers, giving friends and families an opportunity to experience their dancers’ talents in an inclusive atmosphere.
The dancers’ day began with musical theatre dance workshops taught by Broadway choreographer and Dancers Responding to AIDS champion Billy Griffin. The students enjoyed learning the choreography to Louis Armstrong’s “On the Sunny Side of the Street.”
