Reviews for Dancing Dreams
This is a wonderful program started by one of the most selfless people I know, Joann Ferrara. Dancing Dreams allows disabled little girls to take ballet lessons and participate in spectacular recitals just like other little girls their age. Each dance routine is specially choreographed and adapted to suit the abilities of each dancer. Each dancer has their own helper who is usually a local high school volunteer. On the day of their recitals, these little girls are so excited to be on stage, all made up with their beautiful costumes. When you look at their faces you see pure bliss!! There is not a dry in the audience. When one recital ends, Joann is already working on the next one. Each year it takes more planning because of the popularity of the program. From the original 5 she is now up to over 40 dancers!!
