Ramsey August 5, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • Page 9 A group of young dancers from The Look Sharp Performing Arts Center in Ramsey recently performed at New York City’s Joyce Theater as part of Dancin’ Downtown at The Joyce, a competition for the benefit of Dancers Responding to AIDS. This journey began when Look Sharp choreographer Rosanne Renda submitted a video of “Empty Wells,” a contemporary lyrical dance piece performed by the Look Sharp Senior Dance Company. The dance was reviewed by a panel of judges, and Look Sharp was selected as one of 15 dance schools to compete in the finale. “To dance in New York City on a professional stage where so many great dancers have performed was truly an honor for our students. Our dancers we able to get a glimpse into the world of professional dance, and knowing that all the proceeds benefit AIDS patients made the experience even more magical,” said Look Sharp Executive Director Colleen Cross. Local dancers perform at Joyce Theater AIDS benefit The judges honored Look Sharp with two of 12 scholarships.
