About Johan Cruz and Luz Garcia
This is not just about dancing. It's about fun and fundraising!
Funding is raised by placing votes of $5.00 each for the dancing couple of your choice. Voting closes with the live performance the night of the event.
Dancing with the Reading Stars raises money necessary to support on-going operations, scholarships, productions, and our many outreach and offsite programs – 50% of which are provided at little or no cost to the community. In addition to its onsite classes and preschool, Yocum Institute outreach and offsite programs impact 30,000 people each year. 80% are under the age of 18 and 50% of those Yocum serves are considered at risk population. Although many do not realize it, Yocum is much more than the bricks and mortar of the building located at 3000 Penn Avenue. Yocum develops and runs programs throughout Berks County.
Thank you for your generosity in supporting the arts!
