Young Dance Champions
Samantha & Craig Abaya Campos and Cara Abaya Campos & Jayrd Farcon aren't just great dancers, they've also appeared on the hit ABC show, "Dancing with the Stars" as Junior Dance competitors. Samantha & Craig won the mirror ball last season and their little sister Cara and her partner were semi-finalists.
The four young dancers are in town to perform at the Mad Hot Ballroom Gala which is a fundraiser for Young Audiences. That's a non-profit group whose mission is to enhance children's learning with creative resources within the arts community.
The Mad Hot Ballroom Gala will be held Saturday, April 11, 2009 at the Portland Art Museum. Like last year, the program will include students from six schools in Portland as well as local personalities and professional dancers competing in a "Dancing with the Stars"-style event.
