Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss are truly the best ambassadors of dance in the industry. Their generosity and kindness is now extending beyond the dance community with a new Dance For Kids campaign.
The So You Think You Can Dance All-Star couple are initiating a five-week fundraising challenge to help raise money for 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
The Ellen Show DJ explained why he and his wife wanted to support CMN Hospitals.
"It’s about the love for kids and love for the future," he says in a CMN Hospital interview. “[It's about] finding a bridge on how we can give back to the community and actually help kids through dance."
"As long as you have movement in your heart – you’re a dancer," says Holker in the press release. "Dance for Kids is a wonderful way for any person who loves dance to come have fun, feel good, and help others.”
Boss and Holker are asking dancers and dance studios to sign up for the fundraiser and host events in their area to build awareness for the campaign. Studios must contribute a minimum of $1,500 for the fundraiser.

The donations will go to vital areas of the children’s hospitals like pediatric medical equipment, research, therapy programs and charitable care.
The top three studios will have to the opportunity to send one individual to a celebrity event hosted by the duo in Hollywood on Saturday, Dec. 17. The event will be live-streamed and include dance performances.
