The "I'm A Dancer Against Cancer" charity was created to provide financial support to dance educators, dancers, and parents impacted by cancer.
QDance Center has joined the charity in the fight against cancer and to date has raised $1000 qualifying the center to become a HOPE Studio. During the month of October, dancers collected money from friends, neighbors and businesses to help them reach the $1000 goal. This past week QDance and the Quincy Vocational Technical School held a "TuTus for TaTas" day. Teachers, staff, and dance students wore tutus and donated $5 toward the cause.
