The Dance Craze – giving feels like magic
January 18, 2020
This last December, The Dance Craze held their fifth annual Christmas show themed "A Disney Holiday" for all of their amazing dancers and their families. They were able to show their friends and family some of the dance skills they have learned. Pre-purchased flower bouquets were given to families to show just how much they appreciate and love their dancers. They even had some surprise guests visit them after the show: Santa and Disney princesses Belle, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White all came to see the wonderful dancers. They had the opportunity to take pictures, talk and even get autographs from these marvelous princesses.
In lieu of admission families were encouraged to donate a toy to the Ronald McDonald House in Bakersfield. Ronald McDonald House is a non-profit organization that gives families of Kern County pediatric and NICU patients a place to go to take a break from the hospital environment, a home away from home. The Dance Craze was able to donate 15 large boxes full of games, toys and books to this incredible organization. Some of the dance families donated a bag of toys.
Joscelyn Rivers, Director of The Dance Craze, says, "It was an amazing show with a showcase of enormous amounts of talent. I am so proud of the generosity of our dance family and the community! We were able to donate hundreds of toys and items that will make a hard time a little less difficult for families at the Ronald McDonald House. Bravo!"
The Dance Craze gives their dancers positive role models that encourage giving because giving feels like magic.
