Local Dance Studio Presents an Evening of Holiday Song & Dance for Kids in Need

Submitted by Carrie Smith.

(Dec. 3, 2019) — The Dance Corner, of Killingworth, CT, presents its eleventh annual performance of The Winter Follies: A Celebration of the Season Through Song and Dance. The performance is Friday, December 20, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Andrews Memorial Town Hall Auditorium on East Main Street in Clinton, CT.
This toy drive performance has become a holiday tradition on the shoreline. The Dance Corner joins forces with Corner Music, Old Saybrook and Shoreline Singers, Haddam to bring together dancers, singers and musicians for a evening of fun and festive songs and dance. The Winter Follies show will surely put you and your family in the holiday spirit!
Carrie Smith, director of The Dance Corner says, “This event is very important to me because it’s about giving back to our community and helping those in need. At The Dance Corner we are teaching more than just great dance. We are dedicated to helping our students become great people. The Winter Follies doesn’t have all the flashy costumes and flowers and trophies of our annual recital, but for our students performing in this show is more significant, because it is about family, friends and our community coming together to make needy child’s holiday special.  The 2018 Winter Follies performance collected over 360 donations for Madison Youth and Family Services and Yale New Haven Children’s hospital. That was a record for us. We are planning to crush that record this year. We have set a goal of 400 toys!”
The cost of admission is $10.00 per person however; we encourage all attendees to bring a new, unwrapped toy to benefit the Madison Youth and Family Services and Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. Admission price with a new, unwrapped toy is FREE. Tickets are available at The Dance Corner, 206 Route 80, Killingworth through December 14, 2019. After that any available tickets will be sold at the door. The program is about 70-80 minutes long and suitable for adults and children of all ages.
