“Kathy Bunker, Owner/Artistic Director of Bunker Dance Center started “Dancers Making a Difference” in 2008. After hearing Becky Douglas speak at BYU’s Education Week in 2006, Kathy felt the urge to “do something” for this wonderful organization, Rising Star Outreach! It took a couple years to carve out the time and plan for a dancer’s benefit concert but she was determined to help in some way!
What started as a small gathering of three studios in a church has expanded to 8 studios and hundreds of dancers as we prepare for the 6th Annual Dancers Making a Difference!” — Bunker Dance Center
April 22nd was a special Tuesday that brought talent from all over the Las Vegas area to one theater to raise aid for those affected with leprosy. When we were talking with Kathy Bunker she kept saying how special a night like tonight was because these 8 studios are usually competing with each other, but tonight they are united in service and helping others. This feeling is what Rising Star Outreach loves to promote. People from all backgrounds, situations, locations all come together to help those that are in need. Helping people that are often looked over of forgotten. But we will not for get them, we see them and the beauty and strength that they offer the world.
We would like to thank each of the 8 studios participating this year. Their performances were amazing and a special thanks to special guest Aaron Turner.
