Cresskill Dancers Bring Hope With Volunteerism

CRESSKILL, N.J. — Cresskill performers will dance for hope when the arts center produces a fundraiser for a non-profit dedicated to spreading joy to the homeless.

The Cresskill Performing Arts center will run a Dancing for Hope event April 24 for A Slice of Hope foundation, Director Betsy Daly said. The performance will be held at Cresskill High School and the arts center is now in the planning stages with other dance troops, Daly said.

"it's very gratifying," Daly told Daily Voice. "It really goes in the face of people in the dance world who think we all hate eacher other, but we don't. It's cool that we can all come together and cooperate."

Cresskill Performing Arts teaches dancers from ages 6 to 19 and they will all perform. The event will also feature live music and a pizza party, Daly said.

The center held a fundraiser for A Slice of Hope last year in New York City, making this April the first time it's held in Cresskill, Daly said.

A Slice of Hope holds pizza parties with live music at homeless shelters across the country, its website states.

The exact participants are still being decided but Daly said they plan on having six dance studios. She'll also have help organizing it from her daughter Susanna.

Ticket information will be announced in the coming weeks, Daly said.
