Kentridge High School students and community present the eighth annual Dance for Heart program on Friday, Feb. 7, National Heart Awareness Day.
The program, “Everybody Dance Now,” is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the school’s Performing Arts Center, 12430 SE 208th St., Kent.
The event features more than 150 performers, with the theme of the 1980s and early ’90s hip hop.
Proceeds from the show – sponsored by the American Heart Association (AHA) and Kentridge Sports Medicine – support the AHA.
Past shows have raised thousands of dollars for the AHA, according to Denise Wiskow, a sports medicine teacher, coach and Yoga Club advisor at Kentridge who has been directing the show since its inception. The show includes Kentridge-area performers.
“It’s a great opportunity for all students to show their talent and to work together as a team to raise heart disease awareness to the community,” Wiskow said. “This show brings all different cultures and all of the dance groups together at Kentridge.”
The entertainment lineup includes performances from the Chatelaines; Kentridge gymnastics; the Little Chargers; Steppers and Ballers; the Yoga Club; multicultural dancers from K-pop to hip hop; singers, solo and other dancers.
The program is part of the school’s devotion to February, Heart Health Month.
Admission is $10 and includes a “heart” T-Shirt.
