To inspire the members of club ECHO, O’Grady and her fellow dancers spent a day at Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center getting to know some of the children with special needs that their event will be benefitting. The troupe volunteered in the preschool classroom and led the students through a variety of dance movements.
“I created Dream On because of the tremendous response and feedback of the community last year,” said O’Grady. The 2010 event, Dream, raised an astonishing $5,000 and fellow Manheim Township students and Encore Dance Studio dancers immediately wanted to know what O’Grady was planning for 2011. “The enthusiasm and dedication of others made it impossible not to do it again,” she concluded. The show promises to be another great success.
