Bridgeway Presents...Dancing For Our Stars
Bridgeway Academy presents...
Dancing for our Stars is destined to be one of the most talked-about gala fundraising event of the season. Inspired by the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars this evening of dining and dancing will feature six Nova Scotia celebrities strutting their stuff on the dance floor, all in support of educational programs for students with disabilities. Proceeds will help fund student bursaries to remove financial barriers to specialized education.
This year's celebrities include Pete Luckett, Jodi Bartlett, Brad Hartlin, Dr. Camille Hancock Friesen, Devin Devarennes and Roma Jean Dingwell. All six have been partnered with amateur dancers from Dancesport Atlantic and are learning their steps under the watchful eye of Jane Edgett of Edgett Dance Studios.
This fantastic event will be taking place at Halifax's Cunard Centre on Saturday, September 24. Tickets are available online at www.dancingforbridgeway.com or by calling 1-888-435-3232.

About Bridgeway Academy
Bridgeway Academy was founded in 1983 by a mother who was convinced that students with learning disabilities could learn and do anything, if they were taught in a way that works for them. Since then, Bridgeway's day school program has helped hundreds of students do more than learn.
They leave our school believing in themselves, with an understanding of their learning disabilities and the ability to advocate for the services they need to succeed. Today, we operate schools in Dartmouth and Truro and work with close to 100 students.
Bridgeway Academy is a Designated Special Education Private School (DSEPS) in the province of Nova Scotia. We provide individualized programming for students who have been diagnosed with learning disabilities (LD) and/or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Our students are all average or above-average intelligence, but struggle with specific neurological disorder that impacts their ability to store, process, retrieve or communicate information.
When a student is accepted to Bridgeway, we work with the family, psychologist and other professionals to develop an individualized program. Our focus initially is on remediation, but as the student's skills improve, we'll adjust the program and increase curriculum delivery. When a student's skills are back up to the level of their peers, we'll work with the student and the family to help transition them back to the public school or post-secondary school system.
