Dance for Life... and make a difference

Pajama and book drive for the Utah Foster Care Foundation

In 2009 a few studio owners decided that it shouldn't just be about dancing during the holidays, it should be about “making a difference” in someone else’s life! What better way to do that than to use our talents and provide an amazing night of dance joined together with our sister studios? The idea evolved into an annual benefit concert, "Dance For Life." We wanted to create a special night for our dancers while bringing awareness to those in need during the holiday season. So many of us have grown up with the tradition of opening up a new pair of pajamas every Christmas Eve. Kids love pajamas! We felt like giving pajamas to other children was a way to help even our youngest dancers grasp the concept of giving. We have been collecting pajamas and books for the Utah Foster Care Foundation and several other local charities each and every year since. They are always so excited to see us and so grateful for new jammies right in time for the holidays! "Dance for Life" has been a wonderful way to create more holiday spirit in our students and share a little dancing joy at the same time!

PROJECT DETAILS: • Pajamas and books must be new, please NO hangers! • Pajamas are needed for all sizes. From preemie up to adults. • Involve everyone around you! Ask for donations from your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. Visit for ways you can get involved. • We will be collecting pajamas at the studio, and the night of the benefit concert.
