Dancing for Autism Celebrates its 7th Year in Production

 
Families, friends and members of the community came out to support Dancing for Autism 2018 at Kings Park High School on Friday, May 25, 2018.
 
The collaboration between Vic D’Amore’s American Studio of Performing Arts and DDI is in its seventh year. Proceeds from the event benefit the Adult Services programs at Disabilities Institute, Inc. (DDI).
 
Dancing for Autism brought together adults supported by DDI with dancers from Vic D’Amore’s Studio in a performance that included tap dancing, freestyle dance, and Irish step pieces.

The pursuit of dance instruction and competition is a very special interest shared by both DDI and the dance studio.

 
 

“The Adult Day Recreation Program staff members have, once again, put together a tremendous event to highlight the abilities of the people we support,” commented John Lessard, DDI’s Executive Director. “It is inspiring to watch the collaboration between DDI and Vic D’Amore’s dance studio and even more inspiring is the the absolute joy shared by all those involved.”

More than 50 dancers took to the stage and spectators young and old came to show their support for the performers and for DDI.
