The mission of Dancing for a Difference is to provide opportunities for children to raise money and needed supplies for community and national charitable organizations.
Dancing For A Difference has sponsored many activities since 2003. These activities have included Bring a Friend events, parties at the studio, 5K Races, Relay for Life events, as well as community variety shows. These variety shows have been hugely successful and have become favorites among the Dance Workshop by Shari dancers, as well as the other participating groups.
