Around this time last year, dancers were feeding those in need by taking ballroom, burlesque, Zumba and jazz dance classes. In four hours, nearly 100 dancers donated $1,440, which translates to about 4,000 meals.

Melena Rounis is bringing her high-stepping fundraiser to Las Vegas for the third year running. Step Up and Dance will be at the The Rock Center for Dance from 12:45 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Nov. 19. Six outstanding dancers are donating half-hour master classes (master locker Scoo B Doo of the original Soul Train gang included), and the money raised will be donated to Three Square food bank. A minimum $10 donation buys a pass to take one, all or a combination of the classes. For extra-good Samaritans, $20 nets a T-shirt as well. You don’t need to be a dancer to participate and all ages are welcome.

For more information about the event, check out my blog post from last year. Or, better yet, grab your dancin’ shoes, head over to the Rock on Nov. 19 and step up to help out before the holidays. See you there!
