Guam - Skip Entertainment Company presents "Dance For A Cause" their second annual dance concert event, which will take place on May 25 at the Father Duenas Phoenix Center. While the event is also an opportunity for the dance company's touring troop to raise money for off island competition, a portion of this year's proceeds from the event's dinner show will go to support two local non-profit organizations and their causes.

In choosing this year's beneficiaries skip's event coordinator Jessica Castro says of the two the Edward M. Calvo Foundation hits home for the dance team, noting, "The reason we chose them this year is because it hits home for us at skip especially Ms. Terry Knapp, who has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer for the past couple years. And so the Edward M. Calvo Foundation has been a major supporter of Ms. Knapp and her treatment and so we decided to keep the organization as well."

Skip also chose Erica's House an organization that helps children and their families by serving as a family visitation center. Faced by challenges as a result of the loss of grant funding cutting a majority of their operation

This year's event will feature three shows on May 25 the first show is a matinee event at 1pm the general admission is $10. Followed by the main dinner show at 6pm for $50. The dinner show will not only feature a special line up choreographed by Skip alumni Dominick Cadiz but also a special presentation by Skip parents.

Tickets are available at http://www.tpiguam.com or you can contact Skip Entertainment Center.
