The residents adore the annual show as much as the dancers enjoy performing for them, and Trivigno says that over the years they have developed relationships with a lot of the residents. The residents recognize the dancers year after year and are able to watch them grow. "It's a huge reason why we keep going back," she says. "It's very rewarding for everyone."
Out of 1,000 students at the studio, only 30 perform in the annual show at the nursing home. They range in age from 4 to 18. Some numbers this year included a hip-hop dance to "Whip My Hair," a lyrical number to "Skyscraper," and a tap dance to "Do You Love Me." To close the show, 14 senior dancers performed a kickline to "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town."
"We always end our performance with our kickline," Trivigno says. "It's a phenomenal number-that was our big show stopper."
