The Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom in Greenwich is stepping up and stepping out while giving back in a new year.
The Greenwich studio along with 7 other Arthur Murray studios in Connecticut announced their New Year's initiative benefitting Stand Up to Cancer in 2014.
Christine Georgopulo, owner of the Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom in Greenwich said, "Sadly the statistics are 1 in 3 women and 1 out of 2 men will get cancer. Every single person alive is going to either know somebody or suffer from some form of it. So it's time. We have to band together, we have to raise as much money as we possibly can and just get rid of it or at least hold it at bay."
Dance 2 Donate will benefit Stand Up To Cancer and its research by donating $5.00 for each person participating in a private dance lesson from January 1 – January 31, 2014.
Georgopulo added, "Wherever there's an opportunity to give back and share what we know either about the community or about dancing or whatever it is. Here's a skill that benefits you in every single possible way and now you get the opportunity to give back and hopefully help that person that's in your family, your friend or somebody across the country that you don't know, but you've allowed your donation to go and help the greater good."
