Dancers to cha-cha for charity
Dancers to cha-cha for charity

Area dance studios are planning to cha-cha for charity Sunday, when dancers will perform a variety of works in Middleton to collect cash and goods for the Second Harvest Foodbank.

The “Dance for Hunger” event from 3-5 p.m. at the Middleton High School Performing Arts Center will include performances by dancers from the Madison Professional Dance Center on the west side, Forte Studios in Mt. Horeb, Midwest Performing Arts in Waunakee, KP School of Dance in Sauk City and Dance Dimensions in Oregon.

Though event organizer and owner of the Madison Professional Dance Center Carol Ceniti didn't mention cha-cha specifically, attendees can count on watching a variety of other styles including contemporary, jazz, lyrical, hip hop and more in the more than 30 numbers planned for the show.

Admission is suggested at $5 or five cans of food, but Ceniti said attendees are welcome to pay or donate what they can.

Attendees are welcome to come and go throughout the event, Ceniti said.

Among the performances, Ceniti said students from her studio will perform a jazz number to Adele’s “Rumor Has It,” and a lyrical-style dance to “Wild Horses.”

Ceniti said the studio has been organizing the fundraiser annually for seven years. She said last year the Dance for Hunger raised $1,800 for Second Harvest and collected 500 pounds of food.
