"Coast 2 Coast: Dance Across America"
Welcome to the home of "Coast 2 Coast: Dance Across America!" We are very pleased to announce that "Coast 2 Coast: Dance Across America, Inc." is a 501(c)3 Tax Exempt Not-for-Profit Corporation registered in the State of New York! Louie Perez, Jimmy Lyles, and Ryan Dutcher are on a mission to motivate anyone and everyone they come across. Each year during National Dance Week, the "Coast 2 Coast" Crew sets out on a weeklong celebration of dance, where their National Tour sends them traveling from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean; "Coast 2 Coast." We set out on this journey to foster the minds of both the youth and adults alike-- and after hearing some of the stories students tell us after our visit, we are definitely succeeding!
ABC News Anchor Heather Armstrong said it the best; "Take a dancer, a DJ, and an illusionist and you've Coast 2 Coast. A trio of professionals who give up two weeks of work to volunteer their time touring the country, to instill hope in dance students. The message is very clear... If you love something pursue it with passion and Never Give Up!" The C2C crew is committed to “paying-it-forward” and we use the dance world as our outlet. The tour takes place during National Dance Week at dance studios across the country, but it includes much more than a traditional Master Dance Class. Not only does this tour promote the health and fitness side of dance, but it also encompasses the ideals of persistence, perseverance, passion, and positivity. The tour proves that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things. Students learn that no dream is too large or small—you can do absolutely anything you set your mind to, as long as you work hard. The C2C Crew is living proof that anything is possible and we’re proud to teach future generations to “Never Give Up!” Not to mention, everything is free of charge to studios and students nationwide!
After students participate in the Master Class, they have the opportunity to apply for three (3) dance scholarships. These scholarships are set up to help pay the tuition of deserving dancers nationwide, at their home studios. This will give them the opportunity to continue their dance education and reward them for being passionate in life. Thanks to our sponsor, The Nifty Thrifty Shop in Fishkill, NY, we were able to award a fourth (4th) dance scholarship to a deserving dancer at home in New York for paying-it-forward through dance. Our 2016 $500 "Pay-it-Forward" Scholarship went to Madison Crineri at VP Dance Academy!
"Our goal is to encourage everyone to
live, love, laugh, and Never Give Up! We will do this one dance step at a time,
Coast 2 Coast: Dance Across America!" We are happy to be guest bloggers
