USA Dance Pittsburgh will host a semi-formal event Saturday March 29, 2014, 7:00 - 11:00 pm at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, 4141 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh. Proceeds from the event will benefit Yes, You Can Dance!. A local organization founded by Ms. Rebecca Stern, Yes, You Can Dance! is dedicated to sharing the joys and benefits of dance.
Ms. Stern states “we make ballroom dance accessible to individuals with Developmental Challenges, Senior Citizens, people with Parkinson’s Disease. We do this through original programming, partnerships with other community organizations, and grants.”

In addition to the ballroom dance with guest DJ, there will be dance performances, a silent auction, cookie and coffee tables, and a very special showcase presented by the Yes, You Can Dance! Exhibition Team. Tickets will be $30 in advance, $35 at the door.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
