About Us

7

Let's Dance 2 Health is an extension of The Stars Come Out, Inc., a non-profit organization founded in 2008 by retirees Dr. Donald and Carlette Henderson. Together, they have over 70 years of experience in urban education and community relations. The Stars Come Out, Inc. was created to make a difference in the lives of others through volunteerism, commitment and financial generosity. Annually, it sponsors a fundraiser to support organizations that do not have a national fundraising umbrella but provide for the needs of children and advocate on the child’s behalf. It exposes kids with disabilities, special needs & sickle cell to the arts. This organization is a beacon of light, hope and a helping hand to the under-served.

 

In 2017, the proceeds will provide trained specialists to help us continue our work in sponsoring and creating dance programing for children with special needs, disabilities and sickle cell disease. With your tax- deductible donation, we will be able to Support, Improve, and Increase Access to Dance Education programs for these chidren where opportunities are not always available. The children will have an opportunity to showcase their dance skills at our annual fund-raiser and be superstars. 

 

It is our vision to create a legacy of education and increase community awareness about the health benefits of dancing as a form of physical fitness and cardiovascular conditioning while exposing the community to the arts.
