The Arc seeks contestants for virtual dance contest

Staff Reports
The Arc of East Ascension invites the public to show off some dance skills in the 2020 Virtual Dancing For A Cause.

The Arc of East Ascension is inviting the public to participate in this year's fundraiser, Dancing For A Cause: A Virtual Experience 2020.

Show off your dance skills in this video dance contest. Create a 30- to 45-second video of your best dance moves (think TikTok). Make it a solo act, a couples dance, or go big and make it a family affair. The deadline to register is Aug. 10.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced The Arc to cancel this year's live event. The virtual event is a partnership with Baton Rouge Parent Magazine.

The money raised from the event helps The Arc fulfill its mission to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities and their families through services and advocacy that support choice, independence and dignity.
