In true dancing spirit, the Aurora and Parker-based Miller’s Dance Force (MDF) team members are dancing their hearts out at their third annual “Miller’s Dance Force Showcase.” This exciting event will not only help to raise money for the group and the Food Bank of the Rockies, it will also bolster awareness and appreciation for local dancers in our community.

In January, the community is invited to join the dancers and their families on Saturday, Jan. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Vista Peak High School. Located at 24500 E 6th Ave. in Aurora, the high school theater will be the perfect location to experience various group dances as the 80-member team prepares for the upcoming 2014 competition season. Tickets are $5 at the door. Seating is general admission.

MDF Co-Director, Heather Elliott, is proud to be a part of such an exciting initiative.

According to Elliott, “Our dancers work hard all year to learn, practice and perfect their dances in time for the competition season. Most people don’t get the chance to see what they have been working on all year. Not only does this fundraiser present the perfect opportunity for community members to experience our dancers’ talents, our dancers will be able to practice onstage.”

Co-Director Andra Stecklein agrees. “Our dancers train for six months to prepare for competition. We are proud to show the community their talent and passion.”

Proceeds from the showcase will go towards dance team competition items and a portion will be donated to the Food Bank of the Rockies. Please check the Miller Dance Team Facebook page for updates, dance team photos and videos and competition updates.

Food Bank of the Rockies provides food for more than 350,000 people a year, distributing 88,000 meals a day through over 1,000 hunger relief partner's throughout the state. One in seven Coloradans worry where they will find their next meal – nearly half are children. The Food Bank of the Rockies is the largest in Colorado with 96 cents of every dollar received going directly to hungry citizens in the state and throughout the Rocky Mountain Region.
