I am so thrilled and honored to once again be a part of this incredible, inspiring, ife-enriching event. As a dancer, instructor, choreographer & performer, I understand the pure joy that working hard, rehearsing a routine and then finally performing on stage for an audience can bring! It's truly a feeling like no other. The opportunity being offered to these community leaders & adults with intellectual diabilties to work together to create a routine that spreads joy, inspires others and raises money is simply amazing. I am so excited to be a part of this and to contribute to others' happiness & fundraise for such a worthy organization in our community! Thank you for supporting us & for helping me make a difference!
Let’s Dance! is much like “Dancing with the Stars,” only in this case the stars are people served by Pathlight, a Springfield-based organization that serves more than 1000 children, teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout western Massachusetts.
Pathlight stars are paired with someone from the community and together they rehearse with a volunteer dance instructor to learn a dance routine they will perform the night of the event: November 11, 2023
