Gavrilov Dance Event Benefits Children with Special Needs
An inaugural benefit, Speechless, will help fund the launch of the Gavrilov Dance program for children will special needs, from 7 to 9 p.m., May 16 from 7 to 9 p.m., at Hudson Dance Studio, in Edgewater, New Jersey. Performances by professional dancers feature Alexey Gavrilov with one of his local special-needs students.
The program reflects the mission of Gavrilov, a ballroom dance teacher who has taught children with disabilities on the West Coast, and hopes to provide a similar opportunity for children in New Jersey and New York.
“Every child is special and an artist,” he says. “Dance focuses on the ability of the individual, rather than on the disability. I am committed to creating a dance studio that encourages these amazing children to overcome their fears—a place where they develop and strengthen their mind and body, while discovering the artist in themselves.”
Location: 986 River Rd., Edgewater, NJ. For more information and tickets, call 201-446-2763 or visit GavrilovDance.com.
