Dancing at Disney


Twenty-six members of the Dance Connection dance ensemble became stars of their own Disney show on June 23 when they entertained resort guests at the Waterside Stage in Downtown Disney. Over 80 people – including parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends, from Rhode Island, Illinois, Florida, Massachusetts and Guatemala – made the weeklong trip to support the dancers. The trip, the group’s fourth, culminated a yearlong process from application to performance. The Dance Connection is located at 1232 Hartford Ave. in Johnston, and is led by Michelle Avella and Valerie Avella. (Submitted photos)
