Peanut Butter JAMM!

This season we are honored to be invited to participate in the Will Dance for Food Kids Project events. This is an amazing opportunity to do what we love (DANCE!!!) and help children and families who are less fortunate. Our Studio will be attending the Will Dance for Food Competition March 7-8, 2014. Here is another awesome event that is part of the Project. All Infinity dancers are invited to participate or support this event!!



WILL DANCE FOR KIDS is a project designed to raise funds for children's charities through dance and dance competitions. When dancers compete they show the world the art, talents and skills they have learned. When they compete to make a difference in the lives of other kids, they learn something even more important, the art of giving. And when that happens, everyone wins!

Mark your calendars for November 2 and get ready to have a BLAST!
