Dréa's Dream Event at Mattel Children's Hospital!!

This week Carrie Ann is reaching out in the dance community in a whole new way! On November 13th, 2008 Carrie Ann will be participating in Dréa's Dream, a pediatric dance therapy program for children with cancer, funded by The Andréa Rizzo Foundation.   This event marks the beginning of an ongoing program for the young patients at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.

The Andréa Rizzo Foundation is the only non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization in the country whose sole mission is to provide dance/movement therapy to children with cancer and special education needs under the direction of registered dance therapists.

Carrie Ann Inaba believes strongly in the healing effects of dance therapy and has generously offered her support for this cause. She will attend the "kick-off" and participate in this very first dance therapy session on November 13th, bringing added smiles and excitement to the children and families at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA!
