Southern Strutt

Wow! Tonight we witnessed something incredibly beautiful. As part of our Dancers vs. Cancer campaign, Tillie Glatz and Bella Hoffheins from Studio Bleu Dance Center dedicated their duet to their friend Delaney Clements who is being treated for cancer halfway across the country. But this is only the beginning. Chuck Crist, the National Director of Starpower, was on hand and he has promised to work with us to help fight childhood cancer. He became a strong childhood cancer advocate a few years ago after meeting Gabi Shull who is a cancer survivor and national champion dancer from Missouri. We are grateful for the opportunity to team up with Studio Bleu, Starpower and the thousands of young dancers that they represent. We will be posting the video in the coming days. Warning: you may need to stock up on the Kleenex! -MG
