Wednesday night the Kern Dance Alliance had its fourth annual Children's Dance Education and Outreach event benefiting local children and giving them the opportunity to visit Kern County's Fox Theater and enjoy many dance performances.  

"One hundred children from Garden Path Ways, the Jameson Center, CASA, Boys and Girls Club all participating the event for the love and joy of dance," said Kern Dance Alliance president Andrea Hansen. 

The night was not only special for the audience it was also unique for the ADAPTIdance group. A group that consists of 40 children who have disabilities, giving them the opportunity to shine on stage. 

They participated thanks to a partnership with League of Dreams among the many organizations that were a part of the night.

Allowing children like 7-year-old Brooke Galindo, who has autism, to take center stage and perform for the first time!

Brook's mom saying it's a heartwarming experience to see her daughter perform full of joy.
