TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF NEW YORK CITY CHILDREN THROUGH DANCE
The Stars of New York Dance is a charitable, thrilling and judged dance competition for New York City leaders that raises dance education funds for children from low-income communities to help them develop discipline, confidence and self-esteem to succeed in school and in life.
Lisa and Nigel's sultry Salsa routine earned them the title "7th Annual Dance Champions" and your support provided $5,000 in scholarships for children to dance at MOVE(NYC).

“A good time! Through The Stars of New York Dance, the community comes together, has fun and fulfills an assignment that helps children thrive."
Susan L. Taylor, Founder + CEO, National CARES Mentoring Movement - Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Essence Magazine - 2nd Annual Humanitarian Honoree
“It's great for young people to see community leaders, legislators and people they see on TV get out of our element and do something unique for children. If I can make a fraction of an impact on young people that James Brown made on me, I'll dance."
Rev. Al Sharpton, Special Guest Dancer - 5th Anniversary Stellar Humanitarian Honoree
“This event is New York City at its best! As a born and raised New Yorker, I am so proud that United Way of New York City has been a sponsor of The Stars of New York Dance since its very first year."
