I look forward to it!" - Rev. Al Sharpton

The Stars of New York Dance annually partners some of New York City's most recognizable community leaders (Dancing Stars) together with five professional dance artists that teach and perform with a community-based dance organization. The “Dancing Stars” will compete to win a $5,000 dance scholarship award for their dance partners’ dance organization that will provide free or subsidized dance education to children and youth from low-income communities, and pay for their dance tuition fees, class uniforms, shoes and dance costumes.
