Dance team to host fundraiser for NY City trip

The Spotlights Dance Team of Halftime by Sheri Dance Studio, West Fargo, was recently selected to attend the 2013 All Star Dancers National Dance Convention in New York City from July 10 through July 15. The team, comprised of third and fourth graders from the West Fargo/Fargo area, was chosen after performing a jazz routine in March at the Applause Talent Dance Competition in Minneapolis.

A special fundraising meal and silent auction will be held Thursday, June 13 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Big Iron Bar and Grill, Osgood Golf Course, 4400 Clubhouse Dr. S., Fargo, to help with expenses related to the trip. The meal will feature a pulled pork sandwich, beans, chips and lemonades. Tickets will be available at the door. Cost is $5, with children two-years-of age and younger free.

The five-day convention will include a dance workshop and "mock audition" taught by the World Famous Radio City Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. The tour will also include Master Dance Classes at New York's premier dance studio, The Broadway Dance Center. Students also have classes taught by New York's Broadway Show Performers. The convention is coordinated by Artistic Adventures of California.
